I still find it bizarre what happened in London, and as a fellow military man, I’m shocked. Shocked that he was killed in his own country by some nutcase, first running him over and then fucking trying to chop his head off. There’s no honor in that, a fucked up way to go for a man with his service record. And only because at that time, they were able to recognize him as a soldier. This honestly scares me, since sometimes I travel in uniform as well. I’ve had people spit at me, give me looks etc, but something like this…I could never expect that here, but I’m pretty sure Lee Rigby would’ve said the same thing. Just after the attack my mom called me saying I shouldn’t travel in my uniform anymore because you never know if some of the nutcases are here in the Netherlands as well. And sadly, I’m starting to agree with her. This is not the way I wanna go out. It’s pointless, sickens me to the stomach and makes all the hours spent in training and service go to waste.
Lee Rigby I salute you, your service will be remembered, not just the disgusting way you went out.
