Two videos inspired these lines. I'd be grateful if you watched them.

each one a prayer sent
up to remind us of those
who have tasted war -

what i think of when
i hear the concussive thud
of mortars firing -

soldiers and sailors,
airmen and Marines and those
who've been left behind -

when i see the bombs
bursting overhead ... there but
for God's Grace, go i.

(c) 2009, Karla Dorman (4/6)

yes indeedy, Karla. Never stop saying it... or thinking it. Over here, I live only a few miles from our biggest army infantry training base on the Dorset heathland and coast... inspite of all the "war-scapes" the natural scenery is STILL stunningly beautiful and seemingly inexhaustive. I shudder when I think how quickly our forces go from the peaceful serenity of here... to the mortal dangers of... there... Hearing the guns firing every day sure reminds me... as does your poem. xx

Karla, your message is convincing and profound -- it is so because it comes from your heart and soul, the heart and soul of a compassionate Amercan -- your passion for the preservation of mankind and love of those that were duty bound voluntairly, 'til death released them, from their sacrifices for humanity -- peace and love my dear friend -- Jon Michael

You remind us, Karla, that the realities of war
that shape the life or death routines for so many
also haunt the dim memories of some. -gene.

The Man Who Saved Christmas by Jeff Ovall

Christmas - only days away; plastic snowmen and glowing reindeer adorn the lawns of neighborhoods all across America. All is calm, all is bright, and yet there is something tragic..
