I want to witness before the most high and the commmunity that I oppose the genocide being committed against the Palestinians.
I’m a long time resident of the Pass (CNP), a nurse for 32 years and a U.S. Army Viet Nam veteran. I spent a year in a helicopter unit in Cu Chi, RVN, in 1968-69.
I worked as a nurse for 20 years in the Pass and 12 years in Calgary.
I believe, since I am intimately acquainted with how an empire does war, that I am capable of recognizing genocide.
Indeed, even those without experience of war but who yet retain critical thinking capacity understand these events underway.
I’m not an American any longer since I renounced my citizenship. I’m a Canadian citizen and I don’t think Canada should support Israel in this. This moral lapse will ultimately cause a lot of suffering to the peoples of the west. It’s tragic our leaders are so short-sighted.
And then of course for those who are believers, there is the next world to consider.
