    Thank you.  Both my children don't see any future in their homeland.  They both are active politically and each work hard to stamp out chronic hunger.

    My main fear are the local police when it comes to my adult, disabled son.  It's beyond bad now.

    We are planning to travel to other countries.

    We are beginning to realize that we can't survive "retirement" here either.

    The gun violence, the hatred, the ignorance.  Priorities of the majority here just.... suck.  America is worth fighting for... but we just seem to be going backwards.  I need to start thinking of our future and not just the next election.

    I'm sad that you felt you had to explain your service and patriotism in a "progressive" site.  You had me at "father".  

    One day maybe we can all just connect as humans or earthlings...

      If that was your first comment, it was eloquent. I hope you contribute more. This is one of the few (and the only online resource where I participate) places where the dialogue is generally civil, thought provoking and rational. Lots of passionate people, but also compassionate.

      Welcome.
