War on TV I Don't Get It
I often wonder why my boyfriend and my father watch so many war shows. Some are fictitious accounts of real wars, and other are documentaries that go on and on endlessly explaining war machines and marching strategies and weapon 'one-ups-man-ship'. I think it's important to be aware that wars happened and what the consequences are, but I don't think it's healthy to have those images put into your brain again and again and again. But they do have the right to watch what they watch and I have the right to walk out of the room and go do something else outside of the earshot of bombs falling on Pearl Harbor for the 1000th time.
