My good friend, brother and fellow veteran Lee Wrights, former candidate for the Libertarian presidential nomination and current LP vice chair, sent this message to all military fathers:
You don’t know me, but I am one of the men who sought the Libertarian Party nomination for President of the United States. I lost that bid about a month ago. I am writing today to say how truly sorry I am you have to spend another Father’s Day away from your blessed children. It truly is to weep.
I ran for president so I could bring you home. It sorrows me that I will not be able to do that this time around. But I promise you; I will keep fighting to bring all of you home. I promise you that the Libertarian Party and its nominee Gary Johnson will not stop fighting to bring each of you home.
As a fellow veteran and father myself, you have my solemn pledge, president or not, my mantra will remain… Stop All War! Have a nice Father’s Day and know someone at home is trying to reunite you with your children. Keep your heads down.
To which I can alone add my fervent amen!
