... Someone knew them, loved them. ....

How many more will hear the
dreaded knock of the officer
at the door, bearing bad news?
How many more will lose sons
and daughters, mothers, fathers,
their hopes and dreams?
Someone knew them, loved them.
How many more will accept a
folded flag, hear the crack! of a
21-gun salute, the mournful cry
of 'Taps'? Lest we forget the
ultimate sacrifice, paid ----
(c) 2010, Karla Dorman (8/7)

|"Il silenzio", the long silence overtook them. Politicos are the only winners in war. A tale of tragedy Karla. May peace joy and love be with you my dear friend. Jon Michael|

|Many more and I hope to never go through it again.|

|How many more indeed? Very well said, Karla. God bless.|

|I wish no parent, spouse or child of a devoted and brave serviceman would ever have to hear it again but alas war is as old as the cavemen and sadly I think it will go on forever in one form or another...

|Beautifully said, Karla. Hugs,

|Sadly true. Wish you'd written this one last week, I just sent the book in to be printed. This one would have found it to have been a nice home. I'll be in touch soon. Thanks Dick|

|And now they're getting ready for Iran. More blood in the mail. Officers working overtime. When is enough enough? Powerful words, brilliantly crafted.|
|Reviewed by Karen Lynn Vidra, The Texas Tornado
|This is happening far too often, Karla, and the government doesn't even seem to give a damn. Sad. Meanwhile, the enemy is getting away by using their most helpless citizens as human bombs and we are getting charged with war crimes. Something is seriously wrong in Washington, DC, I fear ... God help us ALL! :( Heartshattering write; well done!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :( *Tears!*

|A very haunting, sad poem Karla...will there ever be an end to it all?
