Re: Chris Kyle Shot
Saw this on the news and I was heartbroken. I read his book not 2 months ago and after you read it, you can really get a sense of his life and the struggles of the military. He is a true hero and someone I looked up too. This country has gone to ****. The fact that one of our own citizens would murder one of our greatest heroes is a sign that there is little unity left in this country. Whats worse is if you watch some of the youtube videos about his death or his life for that matter, please read the comments.
You will see things like, "Glad he's dead. A murderer like that deserves to be shot" or "Bout time that baby killing bastard got what was coming to him".. and much worse. Whether or not you agree/disagree with our governments decisions, I believe we should always support those fighting to keep our freedom in tact. Whether that means they are overseas or still inside the borders. These men signed up to protect our country and not knowing what they would have to do in order to accomplish their missions. He will always go down as one of our greatest heroes, as will the rest of those men out there fighting as we speak. I can only hope and pray that those people who think they know what these men and women go through every day and still condemn their actions as if they have any right to judge, will realize one day what it feels like to serve. I can only imagine what its like, for I am not a veteren, but I will always support those heroes out there like Chris Kyle who put their life on the line everyday for the ungrateful scum that calls themselves americans. Chris was lucky enough to have lived through the horror of war and save many lives in the process...only to be gunned down by a psychopath on american soil. It is truly a shame when one can fight for so long in an unknown battlefield and acheive so much...only to return to the homeland they were willing to die for and be murdered by those they were defending. I am so disappointed in this country. So disappointed in Americans.
