In memory…

In memory of all veterans, who go to fight for promises unredeemed and return to a nation unrepentant.

May all humankind come to know: there is no good war.

I visited the graveyard today. There’s a new plot this year. Not a vet. Just a guy who worked the oil rigs, played a mean guitar for more celebrations than anyone can remember, drank way too much, and lived longer than any of us expected.

And a family vet is headed back into the carnage for his third tour. Lord, watch over him. He has a one-year old who needs him.
