Updated on November 11, 2016

It's November!

It's November now!

And, it's an election year.

Finally rants stop.

Veterans' Stories


He left us you know,

young and strong to fight for us.

He never came back.


His buddy left, too;

so much like our handsome son.

Which one killed the most?


What was it all for?

We knew war never makes sense.

Life, love, living do.


Some say "They both won."

We at home know it isn't so.

No one wins that game.


Were they "peacemakers"

or just "fresh combatants" then?

Which round is it now?



There is beauty in the world. God made it.

Divide And Conquer

Divide and conquer.

And so it has always been.

Satan taught. Man learned.

      This is very thought-provoking and interesting. It is Well written and I enjoyed reading it. I especially saw the two sons as relatives of mine.

      It is so true that no one wins in war when it comes to individual families if they lost a loved one. The memory of that person may be there but the absence of the person's physical body makes it less of an otter to have, but still an honor to have the folded flag.

      Rodric29 - And for those who do not vote this year, their reluctance is an insult to what they died to preserve in a free, democratic republic. Thanks for stopping by.

      Most wars seem to solve so little while our young men sacrifice limb and life. Well done my friend!

      vocalcoach - I think that most of us who are privileged to live long enough learn the lesson you just enunciated.

      "What was it all for?

      We knew war never makes sense.

      Life, love, living do."
