These flag draped coffins

Returning from distant wars

We must not forget

Whether cause be right or wrong

They’re our brothers and sisters

    • Thank you very much. I find it sad that many people, primarily because of the media’s lack of coverage forget about those sacrificing their lives for our country. Once in a while I like to write reminders to think about those living and dying so far from home.

    • I agree that war is seldom right, but never-the-less it is important to remember those that are thrust into these conflicts on our behalf. We all need to appreciate them for their sacrifices. Thank you for the nice comment and taking the time to read it.
