Memorial Day

Kill or Be Killed.
The shock of numbers-Names-Lives,etched on headstones-- Numbers of the Lost on paper.
The further shock of Suicide amongst America's serving army and its vets-numbers that exceed the number of American soldiers killed in combat last year. War is being fought on our own Soil-a 21st c. Civil War.

The great War machine since our country's founding has claimed over 1 million Lives, Men Women Black White Brown Gay Straight Liberal Conservative Democrat Republican...

Every Day, I asked what has become of  US?
We are good at Remembrance-we are a nation with a terminal illness & a national psyche of Truths best forgotten.
