Remember that time the U.S. shot down an Iranian civilian airliner over Iranian airspace, killing all 290 on board, including 66 children, and then refused to apologize for doing it?
"I will never apologize for the United States. I don’t care what the facts are. I’m not an apologize-for-America kind of guy." — Vice President (and then-presidential candidate) George H.W. Bush, commenting on the downed airliner, 8/2/1988
That quote makes me sick.
LTMC: I actually did not know about this. My only defense is that I was 4 years old at the time, and the government apparently did a great job of glossing over the history books on this one. Also, that GHWB quote is solid gold, thought not as solid as the solid gold dancers.
Think about how the types of people you surrounded yourself with have changed over time. Think of how your values have evolved. Think about how many times you have been hurt or disappointed. Now think about how many times you overcame your emotional and mental hurdles and kept running that race.
