Published by ThisIsTeen
I am Private First Class Daniel Christopher Wright. I am seventeen years old. And I fired the shot that ended the United States of America.
When I enlisted in the Idaho Army National Guard, I swore to support and defend the US Constitution and the state of Idaho against all enemies. I swore I would obey the orders of the president of the United States and the governor of Idaho. I swore this because I love my country and my state.
But what could I do when the president and the governor each ordered me to attack the other? When they both claimed to support the Constitution? When the Army was sent to fight the Army, and no place was safe?
Once I played wide receiver on the Freedom Lake football team. I drove a tough 4X4. My COMMPAD streamed country music. I had an awesome girlfriend, a mom who just needed a little help sometimes, and the best friends a guy could ask for.
With that shot, everything changed.
May God forgive me.
May God in Heaven forgive us all.
