Memorial Day…


Because My Heroes Wear Dog Tags


In fields of stone, where my heroes rest,

Who went to war and gave their best,

Whose names are lost to ages old

Yet deeds recalled in stories bold

Of those who paid the steepest price

And made the utmost sacrifice

Upon whose lips freedom did live

In service to all, their lives to give

For my freedom, to war they did go

though my name they did not know

So shall I honor you, upon this day

In fields of stone, where my heroes lay.

I'm older than I think I am and younger than I feel. I'm stuck in the 80's but relevant to today (oh I hope that last part is true). I think I am more of an enigma than I really am, but somehow still confound those who try to figure me out (or they just look at me weird, so I infer that). And I really hate my first name. Husband, father, Navy Vet, UCF graduate, cat owner (translate.. slave), wannabe writer, and all around big kid who is stuck in an adult world. Overall, I just... um.. something to something, blah blah blah. And that's all I got to say about that.
