On Veterans Day
Have you been to “The Wall”? Have you stood before the polished black granite bearing 58,195 names? Have you gone there in the middle of the darkest night, only to find two or three others standing or collapsed, mourning, remembering? Have you been to "The Wall" in a hard rain? On a glorious summer’s day? In the dead of winter when all is hushed and slumbering?
Have you been to "The Wall" to reflect upon the many tokens of undying love, admiration, respect and sorrow tenderly placed there? Have you gone there to pray? Did you kneel and bow your head? Did you cry?
