When I was in Iraq I used to dream of going on with my life. I
used to dream about what it would be like to go back to school and

nightmares which will now forever haunt me. What I could never have
imagined was how my life would never be the same after a single

have become is a shining example of how ones soul can truly change.
I could not have imagined that my life would be forever inspired
by a new group of people. You asked for things that inspire well
for me I never found faith in the proverbial fox hole but I did
find inspiration in a TX ditch.
I find CodePink inspirational. I find
women who can go into my nightmare and find people they love inspirational.
I find a grieving mom who finds the strength to stand and yell NO

and make tons of money but instead care enough to bring my brothers
and sisters home inspirational. I with all do respect need no songs
