06 Oct 2012 admin In G+ Posts

So I saw this as a post on my Facebook today and then I read the comments and was sort of amazed at what I read.. as you might know the Bay Area is a pretty Anti War machine area…

Share it out to your friends also.. I am very interested to see what people might think.. I will post my thoughts in the comments below also.. And please feel free to state your true feelings…

For those that have seen the Blue Angels Fly – What is your opinion?

What do they represent to you?

Here is the google document I saw also:

    I find it sort of interesting the limited response to this…. oh well – here is the response I decided to give in the thread on that other social network…

    Love them and all of our military – the blues unite our society at a time we all need to be.. brings out families and people that normally would never intermingle and shows that the military should and needs to be supported. They show what level of precision can be attained by humans when given tasks only few in the entire world can perform and makes many rethink how and why they do what they do daily, and why they have the privilege to live in the US. Those that think its a problem or it's too loud or there is too much traffic need to rethink what is actually important in society today and why they are allowed to think they are a problem is because we have a military that keeps us safe daily. People complain about everything these days, just watch a Facebook feed – it is 90% complaints and 10% junk…. Being inconvenienced for a few days is just tough – lock yourself in your house and complain on Facebook about it.. but do not ruin something that literally brings millions of Americans together across the nation.

    Brent Burzycki — that was an awesome response you posted. Glad to see others appreciating these men — as well as the dedication and sacrifices of All Our Military Servicemen and Women.
