The Cost of War

By: Abbi Colborn

Introduction

What if the only reason you were alive was because you followed all the ridiculous rules, on top of that there is a deadly war going on and America keeps poking their nose in out of the war when they need oil. That place, is the Middle East, or more particularly Iraq and Afghanistan. Children are dying and their mothers, the only people who love them, are trapped inside by the law so no one outside cares that their future generation is dying at their hands. It brings tears to my eyes when I think of innocent people dying because of their country, because of their gender, because of some stupid mistakes some other people made.

This is WRONG!!!!

What can You Do?

You need to know about this because you’re probably a person, so hurting someone equal to you is criminal to you, hopefully, and this is happening every day in Afghanistan and Iraq. If not, you need to realize that if you were one of these people, you would be straving, wounded, possibly sick, wondering if you would die today. This happening because of a few bad choices made a few years ago by corrupt leaders. This has made me look at the world differently because the world is not a perfect place, it will never be as long as humans are on this Earth. I’ve always known that. But I never knew that it was this twisted and wicked. You'd think we were trying to kill off the entire human population. YOU have the power to stop all of this. All you have to do is let the government know. Email president Obama, start a protest rally, organize a fundraiser, any of these things will help. Just remember that many people have and will die until one of two things happen. Either the armies will kill of all the population in Iraq and Afghanistan or the war will be won by one side or another.
