That Smile

Confab With Me

The gloomy skies overshadowed the horizons with shades of pewter and then she smiled and brightened the world

Just love…

This night I was in Washington State at Fort Lewis. I was in the NCO(Non-commission officer) school. 8 weeks of training to be a leader. It was a Friday night and I decided to stay on post and drink alone. The NCO club was across the street from the training center and living area for the soldiers. I went early with my journal and pen to the NCO club. I drank my beer slowly and wrote down my thought.

I looked in the bar’s mirror and laughed at myself. One year ago. I was living in Ann Arbor. Trying to drink myself to death and thinking death was more worthy than life.

My friend taught me to be graceful to be alive and with family.

He stood tall and was a example to the young soldiers.
 
He loved the Army, 24 plus years he served.
 
He treated his daughters like princesses.
 
The girls are young woman now.
 
So beautiful and smart.
 
He would be so proud of them.
 
I lost my friend in Iraq in August…

Hello Diary,

It is a Friday morning, a holiday weekend arriving here on the prairies… a weekend to remember the fallen who have given the sacrifice while serving… those who passed because mankind, closed minded and filled with hate and prejudice, chose the sword over the pen when trying to settle differences… and all that were accomplished was the sowing of more seeds of hate, anger and suffering… 

I know first hand about the cost of conflict… that is…
