Support Our Troops This Holiday Season

Does anyone else ever feel like the fact that we are at war doesn't really touch your daily life? I find myself walking down the streets of this great city in this great country and all of a sudden stopping short with the realization that we are in fact in a state of war and have been for several years. It feels wrong, somehow, not to be doing more on our part to support the troops, and I am disappointed in our government that there is not some sort of a call from them to us to "do our part." Whether or not you support the war, there are brave men and women far from home and their families--or perhaps without a home or family--who are laying their lives on the line every day in conditions that most of us cannot ever fathom.

I wish it were more, but if you want to do something here is a link to send the troops a USO care package. It costs $25, is tax-deductible, allows you to write a message of support, and will get you miles on American Airlines. I would like to encourage everyone who reads this to send at least one this holiday season as a recognition and thanks to our fellow Americans who are sacrificing so much in far-flung parts of the world so that we can live in the safety, security, and prosperity that we often take for granted.
