I have many strong opinions about the war and our government. I am, however, happy to say that at least they have the resources available to help returning soldiers with all the hardships they will face. Thanks to a friend's brother* who is in the service, I have this actual posting from his army homepage:
August 29, 2006 - NATIONAL SUICIDE PREVENTION WEEK - 10 - 16 SEP 2006 - THIS YEAR'S THEME IS "SCIENCE AND PRACTICE IN SUICIDOLOGY: PROMOTING COLLABORATION, INTEGRATION, AND UNDERSTANDING". IT HIGHLIGHTS THE SYNERGISTIC BENEFITS OF WORKING TOGETHER TO PROMOTE SUICIDE AWARENESS.
Can we just talk about this for a second? Obviously it's the most geniusly hilarious thing ever, but let's dissect. It's the practice of suicide-study? In which they promote the, what?, collaborated efforts made towards suicide? And the integration!!? What are you lacking in your life? It's probably suicide because you know not enough people know the benefits of the integration of suicide into their everyday life.
Thank God my tax dollars aren't going to something awful like cutting down emissions.
