Hey, your writing style has beats or music. Did you know that? Yup, I agree, I think we've come a long way since the days of My Lai where there was only utter condemnation of the atrocious and murderous rampage, but no one bothered to ask why, or even shake their head over the conditions that led to it. I think everyone is upset over the conditions that were set --his personal life, his military life, the stresses, his injuries, and PTSD that culminated in this murderous tragedy. But I'm with you. I don't cut him any slack either. And I don't cut our society that much either when it comes to the conditions that led to it.
Thank you for the Kudos.I'm a drummer... guess I write what I hear in my head.
