What are you willing to sacrifice?

The ultimate sacrificeIn last night's presidential debate, I heard one of the most interesting questions. I'd like us all to take just one quick moment to contemplate on this:

Sen. McCain, for you, we have our first question from the Internet tonight. A child of the Depression, 78-year-old Fiorra from Chicago.

Since World War II, we have never been asked to sacrifice anything to help our country, except the blood of our heroic men and women. As president, what sacrifices -- sacrifices will you ask every American to make to help restore the American dream and to get out of the economic morass that we're now in?

What are you willing to sacrifice?

My good friend Gil the Jenius likes to reframe this sentiment to "What are we willing to invest?" Which, to his credit, is the right way to look at this. But either way you choose to face the question, I can't help feeling that some drastic change is needed. So I ask, what are you willing to go without today, in order to positively contribute to a better Puerto Rico tomorrow?

P.S. - If you're not familiar with the kind of sacrifices the United States (and many other nations) suffered to support their war effort during World War II, please take a moment to read about those sacrifices.
