On September 11

Posted: September 11, 2016 in Healing from War

A solemn day. As we remember what was taken, what was offered up and sacrificed, what was given freely, what was left on the battlefield, what was brought home. What is still…ongoing.

You were born for this day. Men and women called to the brotherhood, called to rise up and respond with violence so the rest could remain intact.

We focus on what was lost and sacrificed AND we must focus on what, in turn, was gained: souls who know that life is worth defending, a brother’s blood is worth a thousand sleepless nights, ignorance of war at home is worth the inability to forget what you have learned.

Mourn and be grateful today. Only a few who ever walk this earth are entrusted with the ability to carry what you carry. Your truths divide you inside and they make you whole.

Be wholehearted, my warriors. Fight on.

    Outstanding, another masterfully written piece. Thank you.

  2. As always, well thought out and succinct. I attempted to share it to Facebook and it would not work (“content of this post is not acceptable”), so I copied the link and posted it anyway. Take that all you pc idiots!
