|The past would always contribute something in shaping today. It is only right that we shouldn't forget what our elders have done to make this world more livable. A compelling write, indeed Jon. Peace and love in Christ.

|They gave their lives for symbols of ideals war doesn't live up to. Blindly following orders means atrocities will occurs. Invoking war gives license to killing anyone--men, women, and children-- in the zone or fog of war. I prefer the wars of Ghandi and Martin Luther King to demonizing a whole people so our highly trained, equipped and brainwashed can kill them.
That's why our troops come home demoralized and often bitter.

|The "alabaster bases" in our D/FW National Cemetery are what catch my breath. In few years past, I've made the effort to drive some Veterans
to this cemetery...a few didn't even know it was so close by.
Jon, your poetic words are such wonderful memorials to our Vets!
Blessings and Love - Micke
