Thinking of all the men and women who have fought for the ideals of this country. Feeling sad about all the people in uniform out there now.
Wishing for an end to the violence that begets violence and ruins so many lives.
Wishing for the safe return home of those brave soldiers.
Wishing for a renewed focus on taking care of our own - those experiencing PTSD, missing limbs, sick, maimed - rather than supporting the war machines, weapons manufacturers, wartime profiteers, and others looking to capitalize on the suffering of our people and others less fortunate around the world.
This is my great grandfather, taken in France in 1918 or 1919.
