Veteran's Day 11/11/07

by John Fischer

To those who fought and never came back
And those who came back broken
To those who wondered why
And those who never questioned

No one asked them what they thought
Of policies and platforms
They only did what they had to do
And thanks was long in coming

On a day we honor the dead and the living
Who know the real cost of war
And those still trapped inside their heads
Who can't get outside the door

Who can know the awful truth
Of what they must have seen?
And who has lived to tell it
Yet know they never will

Reasons that the journalists
And politicians won
Will never be the same as those
On this side of a gun

So on this day we lay aside
Our arguments and advice
And thank the Lord for those who gave
The ultimate sacrifice

John Fischer’s "Catch of the Day" 11/12/07

The weirdest thing just happened - I came to your blog and for some reason it brought me to Dec. 4 of last year - the one dedicated to me. I was so confused! Anyway, post something new! I need more distractions, but don't feel like leaving my own. : )
