I would infinitely rather [die] at the hand of the executioner than desert at the crisis the sacred cause of my country."
I cannot count the times since this tragedy happened, that I wish I was of the age to be accepted to join our Armed Services. There are very few things I would be " willing" to die for and my country is surely one of them, and this is certainly one of "those times".
You are a brave and honorable person. God bless you. But you can also do a great deal without being in the Armed Forces. Let your patriotism be known and stand for the truth. That will make a difference to your peers. I have two teenagers and they have a new found respect for patriots. By supporting and honoring those that do have to fight, we can be their most valuable weapon. There is no greater force or weapon on earth than the power of words. God bless you and give you the wisdom to make yours count.
