We could run. We could stand. Which would it be?
There has been much discussion regarding our entrance into Iraq. I concur with some of the assessments. But I have a bottom line: We don't run. We stand.
For all men and women in uniform who have shed their blood since 9/11, my heartfelt gratitude. My heart is still beating. The bellows of my lungs are still full of the breath of life.
And to a beloved Commander-in-Chief? My deepest respect. We don't run. We stand.
