Finish what we started!

When searching around for a topic to talk about, I came across a very sad story about a man losing his wife in the 9/11 attacks. It's hard to read this story without getting misty eyes, because it really comes from his heart and his reasons aren't just automatically stated. He has obviously thought long and hard about his story because no human would want to put other lives in danger if there was no apparent reason. In his story, Wolf talks about his opinion on Obama's speech where he talked about the soldiers returning from Afganistan instead of staying to finish what they were deployed to do. I'm not very educated on this subject, but even since I was younger and heard the arguement whether or not we should pull out of the "war," I've had a very strong opinion that we need to finish what we went there to do. If we are going to back out without finishing our job, what happens to all the countless men and women that died for us? Do they just not matter anymore? Wolf makes a good point that many people don't hardly think about. He says, "I ask every person out there if it was your wife that went to work and never came home. . . would you do anything to make sure it didn't happen again?" After reading that, it makes me sad that people want to forget what happened on 9/11 and just return troops with work unfinished. Support the troops<3
