Please take a moment of silence to thank our military members who gave their lives for others this Memorial Day.
arcing like mortar fire ,
with deadly accuracy
the mind of the Veteran :
the face of a buddy
his life in place of his -
wonders if it was worth it :
of knowing that it could have
if not for the sacrifice
heroic acts of others .
of a haunting melody
the Veteran as he pays
to his buddies on the Wall .
(c) 2005 , Karla Dorman .

|Powerful work, Karla. I remember all the controversy about The Wall as a memorial, but I continue to believe that it is the most poignant, potent memorial erected to the memory of our fallen soldiers. Thank you, poet.|
|Reviewed by Kate Burnside
|This is one wall that should never be dismantled and should be a cornerstone to our remembrances. Excellent write that stirs a lump in my throat, Karla. Only those who have served can have any idea as to the change of life's perspectives that it must bring: but your natural gifts of compassion and empathy take you - and us - there as ever. TY and yes, I will not forget. Bless you. Kate xx|

|Beautiful and sincere. Bravo!

|For the time you served, I salute you, Karla. No one knows the flavor of freedom like a soldier, for they are touched by all that is required to keep it. How can we go through our days and not be humbled and sad for the lives given that we may live beneath the flag of liberty. I owe all that I have to those who spilled their blood that our country might endure. God bless them all. Wonderful tribute and just an excellent poem in every respect.

Now who is making the other one cry?
Yes, We should all stand silently and remember, and give dedication to those that dedicated their all, for our continued freedom, and way of life that we all take for granted every day.
Stunning write Karla. I thank you for your service to our Country.
