I admit it; I am not a patient man. I much prefer action. This waiting is taking a toll on all of us. I wish I had words of wisdom, words to make this easier as waiting is hard. I’m simply going to put a poem out there in honor of Veteran’s Day.
The Old Vet
I went downtown today to watch the parade. As it made its way through town I did my best to stand on my one good leg as Old Glory passed me by and I wondered, as I looked around, why I was the only one and it almost made me cry because I earned that right. I earned that right. Not for me, but for you.
I got home in time to catch the news as the election results came in. It made me sad to hear the news guy say that less than half of the people vote. I thought of all of the people who would love to have a voice that could be heard and it almost made me cry because I earned that right. I earned that right. Not for me, but for you.
From the start of this country there have been people who understood that the color of freedom is crimson red. They came back with broken bodies. Some never came back at all. All the ever wanted was for you to be the best American you can.
I went to church this Sunday and as I looked around I saw all of the people praying and I could not help but think about all of the people that gave their lives so they could choose this church and this time I did cry because we earned that right. We earned the right. Not for us, but for you.
