Mentire, negare, sperare se mori*
I like the VA motto "I care" but so far, it is unearned although they're trying hard to deserve it. Until then, they should use the one above instead.
Let's challenge VA to start from this unofficial but completely appropriate motto, and work towards where that institution belongs in American government fulfilling its responsibilities towards veterans. Then, we can agree they care.
*Mentire, negare, sperare se mori (Latin: "Lie, to deny, to hope that he is dying")
