Should i feel guilty for not serving my country?
a U.S. army soldier approached me today and I sort of felt guilty if i didn't join.
Being a soldier is a career choice just like if you were approached by a preacher..you should not feel guilty you are not a preacher...or a doctor..
I understand it is serving your country but a doctor saves lives and a preacher serves God so...if it follows to feel guilty those should make you feel guilty too.
no i would not feel guilty. i would not put my life at risk as i just don't feel anyone should have that obligation. personal opinion.
Did your country secure the border?
Did your country protect you from illegal immigrants invading the country?
Did your country tell you the truth about the Iraq War?
Did your country uphold the constitution and our laws?
The answer to all these questions is your answer.
are you doing something better...now?
Is that the tactic the military is using now to get recruits? Guilt??
People who feel a war is just and right will have no problem fighting that war...
Those who feel a war is unjust and unnecessary and illegal, will have a problem going to fight that war.
There are plenty of ways to serve your country. Become a teacher. Join the Peace Corps, work for the Red Cross.
