I sat with her afterwards for awhile. I wondered what it was about. She wouldn't tell me. Likely because she didn't want me to be scared, too. She's good like that. She just put her big head in my lap, looked up at me and sighed.
I wish people would stop using veterans as a justification to deny refugees safe harbor. It's crass, disingenuous, and frankly gross. Our government can afford to do both. And if you, as a citizen, aren't pounding the phones and social media to your reps in DC demanding they take care of veterans, just shut the fuck up.
It's just cunty of you.
You can be passionate about veterans and refugees. They are both human beings. Stop being an asshole.
I sometimes forget how awesome they once were.
