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.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
