You "wheeled" over Karla's toes (and mine) with this powerful, heartrending poem. WOW! EXCELLENT; this needs to be showed to every government official and those in charge! Maybe then will they "Take action", give the Veterans what they're due!
Very well penned; bravo!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(
Sacrifice by those who serve on both our minds today: for those wounded, the war does indeed go "on and on." Shame the governments won't honor promises, made to take care of them; pay them a decent, liveable wage (while increasing THEIR coffers every year); or even say, "Thank you" unless convenient. Sad. I know: I'm one of the wounded. 23 years now, fighting the VA ... thank you for penning REALITY. This is a keeper, and no, Sir, the chair doesn't offend. This needs to be screamed from every rooftop: NO MORE!
