True Victims – remember them all, for they are you.

We cannot just pay homage to those who lost their lives but everyone who survived any war is a victim, haunted by ghosts of the past.  Every vet I ever met who survived in combat situations.  And not just in wars past but those today.    Families of survivors are victims too.  My father’s family suffered with the scars and memories brought back by their loved ones as did most others.  Putting on a brave face determined how one appeared to survive in life, but in the dark and  at end of life even seventy or eighty years later every horror heard and seen could be recounted.  Brave faces, broken hearts, broken souls.  There are no winners.  Ever.

  1. Thought I’d pop over to thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! I agree with your thoughts here. I believe that humans are their own worst enemy, and we will whittle our world down to nothing if we are left to our own devices. There are precious individuals who are making a difference, but they are few and far between, I fear.

I love to hear your thoughts on this!
