Lawrence S. Pertillar

Bronze Star - 6,440 Points (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

~65~


I have learned many things,
With experiences taught throughout my life.
And when I arrived at the age of 65...
With a belief I had achieved a wisdom.
And acknowledging my blessings,
Is this...
The only ignorance I am obligated to condone,
Is my own.
With a freedom to admit it or not.
