What can we do about fixing things when so few care?

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

Will May’s recognition and honoring of our war dead be marred by this new VA scandal?

This is a time to pay tribute to those that scarificed their lives defending the United States and freedom, not a time to expound the pros and cons of what’s happening in the VA. Reporters bring up President Obama stating what? Sunday Morning news programs have lines from the White House chief of staff stating that he has been scarred for life by the president.

On this matter, veterans are having lives lost as they wait for dire medical care. Secretary Shinseki has been left to deal with more of what has been an ongoing VA problem since the Korean War.

But, I ask, what’s the use with this issue and other unjust problems? For humanity continues to overlook suffering so as to keep their comfortable lives intact. I feel most care about only number one.

That’s my experience. I see that no matter who gets pulled on the carpet, there will be little true commitment or resolution. So I state that not enough commitment means that we’re only generating material for the press without bringing solutions to those affected.

In a town like Greenwich almost all issues are dismissed, for nothing wrong ever happens here.

But I know differently and I have and will keep bringing up issues from the Coastal Watch Tower to town government to the incompetent incidents of Greenwich’s medical institutions.

I’ve stated this so many times, but what good will come when so few care?

The mindset of a high Obama official actually labeling his problems dealing the VA and the president as scarring is pathetic. And I can imagine what my father and his fellow WWII veterans would say about this wimp, along with the new American mindset, not to even begin to imagine what our war dead would say about this whole pathetic mess.

I include all the issues and causes that have been stated as part of a huge, shameful and pathetic mess.
