Freedom


''It is a sad moment everytime
a soldier dies''

...a sad moment
when a parent mournes
for their child

...a sad moment when
someone so young
puts their life on the line daily
for our ''long-term objective''

    We are so blind that we can even be made to walk over mines with our eyes open.
    In the end it is always the innocent that pay the price for our stupid blunders.
    Whilst the soldiers are left only too often with the blame of others mistakes. (Report) Reply

How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
