First off, thanks for clicking on this link. It shows how smart and good looking you are...
On March 18 2012 I will be running in the 2012 New York City Half Marathon, which a challenge in itself, it doesn’t compare to the courage shown by many wounded warriors coming back from Afghanistan and Iraq. As having been to Afghanistan, my understanding of the stresses of combat is minimal to the continual challenges faced by many of our wounded service members, who will carry a lasting memory for a long time. My plea is that we all put aside our political approval of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, and honor the men and women who choose to serve and defend our country. So if you feel like I do about this, then donate some money to a worthy cause and show your support to the folks that have sacrificed a large part of themselves for the good of our country.
And because this is an election year, if you sign your donation with your political affiliation instead of with your name Ill promise to vote in November for the political party that donates the most money. Lastly, I want to thank you for any money donated to this worthy cause, and know that I'll pay you back once my Lehman Brothers stock bounces back... finance joke for you!
