This afternoon in my Mass Media and Society we were split into groups and instructed to think of issues in this country and rank them in order of importance.
I added the War in Afghanistan and Iraq as a major issue in this country. One of my group members held her nose high in the air and responded “how is the War in Afghanistan an issue in America?”
“How is it not?” was my immediate response. The words came out of my mouth before I even had a second to think before I spoke.
But seriously, how can someone be so ignorant to the impact the war is having on this country? The country is digging themselves deeper and deeper in debt funding the war, and I guarantee the families of soldiers will not agree with my classmate’s point-of-view. If anyone does, I’d love hearing your perspective.
To military families (past, present and future)….thoughts on this debate?
