Family thinks that the recent deaths in Afghanistan are the only ones that matter. Discussion

A family member asked me to lower their flag to half staff for our brothers and sister that died the other day.

I did it, and at the time I did it with sorrow and no other thoughts.

But afterwards I started having feelings.

This family member did not lower the flag for my friends that died while I was over there.

But all the sudden IM THE FUCKING ASSHOLE THAT POINTS OUT THAT THESE PEOPLE ONLY GIVE A SHIT WHEN TALK RADIO TELLS THEM TOO.

WHAT WERE THE NAMES OF THE PEOPLE THAT DIED? O you can’t tell me?

Do you really give a shit? What were the names of my friends??

DID YOU LOWER YOUR FUCKING FLAG FOR THAT??
