Today – a emotional journey into the past –
THE VIETNAM MEMORIAL –
Leaving the Lincoln Memorial and walking across the street –
past the little building selling items
in tribute to the WAR no one wanted !
The walk was quiet – people gathering – people taking pictures –
We all had classmates on THE WALL –
a very divisive time in our young lives –
our middle to late teens –
being told that we would be OVER THERE in High School!
My coach saying to us –
” YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE GOING ” !!!
Living that for five years –
But for the grace of God – go I !
In my Senior year – I had a car accident –
I spent 51 days in the hospital –
not knowing if I would ever walk again
“BUT FOR THE GRACE OF GOD – GO I ”
We all had some one to find – to honor – say a prayer –

REFLECTIONS OF YOURSELF
When you gaze – when you search –
and then you see yourselves
gazing back – looking into your soul
And you know – for what reason –
They gave it up – and you shall never forget.
