I must shamefully and regretfully admit, that before Casey was killed in Iraq, I didn’t publicly speak out against the war. I didn’t shout out and say, “Stop! Stop this insane rush to an invasion that has no basis in reality. Don’t invade a country based on cherry-picked intelligence and despicable scare-tactics. You don’t use our country’s precious life-blood, unless it’s absolutely necessary, to defend America.”

If I had broken the bonds of my slavery to silence sooner, would Casey still be alive? I don’t know.
