    dotsThe Glare of Rockets dots
    -------------------------------------------


    We were in the mood for melancholy
    Drinking bourbon and staring at the moon
    And all the world around was not jolly
    While Polly played a serenade to blue
    We drank to memories made on foreign shore
    To brothers in the grave we'll see no more
    To friends we saved yet since have passed away
    We are the children
    (Literately)
    Who have escaped from hell
    We came out men with lives to live again
    We are the few alive who may honestly say
    We rang
    The freedom bell

      I like this kind of perspective on the veteran's experience;
    it shows enough to let one know that you really can't know what its all about unless you've been there. Living it from heartbeat to heartbeat; then carrying it with you, always.

    on a tangent...Vets should be the only civilians allowed to fly the flag, imho. They earned it; the trailer trash meth-head up the road didnt. It frosts my ass sometimes.
