To the person that was upset about my bumper sticker: my border collie can jump six feet in the air and catch a Frisbee in his mouth. Can your Honor Student do that?
It is important to remember that disabled American veterans are also persons affected by war, only living. It is also important to remember that disabled American veterans gave their lives also. I am one. I am 100 percent disabled and I will die from my service-connected injuries. I gave my life for this country because I have never been able to be the same. It is important to remember that there are those among us like myself who are dishonored every day by those around us who look down upon us for what we are, persons who gave their lives for this country's freedom and those of others.
