Just that fast.

As the armored motorcade continued on down the Iraq road,

In came a powerful rocket load,

What once was a military vehicle,

Ended up being blown to pieces like an icicle.

The poor soldier in it,

Didn't even get a chance to blink before his life split,

So I celebrate his soul,

And learn from his story I just told,

I will not waste one life giving second,

Because it could be my last second,

I will not take even the smallest good feeling for granted,

For the rest of my days on this planet.


And you may be gone!

Such truth, Grady. So many times we fail to see the dangers our military faces, protecting us from the uglies of the world!
Keep up the great work!
Love ya,
