How to erase history!

Seasons of my life

Why Do We Stand?

I'll Always Be There!

I Feel Just Like a Baby!



That's Life!

That's Life!

War is Hell

Oh! Where did it all go?

Untitled

Disrespect?

'OH! My,my,my!"

Warriors

Disrespect!

Beware!

Untitled

Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

"Good Life"

"If"

My Only Son

GONE!

"American Pie"

War is Hell!

Daream Catcher

Time is a Thief!

Ode to T/Sgt. Glenn Wilson

Never To Late!

Where Have They Gone!

Where have they gone?
They used to stand tall,
and represents us all!

Decency, honesty,
tolerance, dignity,
pride, self esteem
and morality.

Love for our fellow man.
Time to give a helping hand.
Pride in our flag and for
what it stands.

Have we relinquished our basic principles for
Greed, self indulgence, dishonesty, child abuse,
drug abuse, brutality, rape, murder, hypocrisy,
fear, hate, indecency, thievery, envy and jealousy.

Where’s the teachers,
the preachers, and
the parents?

What’s happened to
kind hearts and
gentle people?

Where have they gone?...
Gone with the wind!
