I know this is a hot topic so I hope I don't spark a great debate, I'm curious as to what my fellow CDN's are feeling right now. I feel kind of like an on looker. Part of me has this idealistic notion that nothing will happen here in Canada, part of me is afraid we're heading to something larger.Ihaven't followed the whole thing to close-kind of like when a small child closes their eyes and believes they are hiding. If I sound confused its because I am. I've read alot of posts from our american dis'ers and I so respect their courage and patriotism(sp). While I am very grateful for our armed forces, some how we don't get as patriotic as our neighbors?? Maybe its because our government has also kind of taken the position as onlooker as well that I feel this way. I am in no way saying I agree with the war or don't, unfortunately I am not educated enough on the topic to make an informed opinion either way. Do any of you feel what I am feeling or am I way out there? On to the WDW part of my post. I was planning a trip with my ds(7) at the end of August if finances allow. I have had a very difficult year and can't wait until my annual Jan trip. My problem is, as some of you may recall, I travel alone with my son while my husband stays behind. He is saying he refuses to have my son in wdw during a war, while he is at home unable to protect him/us. On one level I see where he's coming from, but I don't feel its a danger--I wouldn't ever put my son in danger on purpose. My belief is when its your time you go, no matter what the location it was decided long before I arrived when I would leave. The obvious answer is for him to join us so we are all together. That will never happen, he will not travel for a number of reasons/excuses so that's out. Also because I've not followed the conflict closely enough I am afraid I've missed something and it really is a bad idea. Then there's always the fear that I go and God forbid something does happen and he was right. What would you do? I know there are alot more important problems in the world right now than my summer vacation. I in no way mean to trivialize that but I believe my post to be about more and I'm hoping others have the same fears and doubts that we may help each other.
