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?

Disrespect?

'OH! My,my,my!"

Warriors

Disrespect!

Beware!

Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

GONE!

The Scarlet Leaf of Autumn's End

Did you see it!
There it goes again!
Swirling, whirling, gliding
like a magical carpet in the wind.

The warm Autumn air pushing it along.
Slowly twisting, descending, but not quite
touching down.

Then quickly rising back into
the late Autumn sky.
Like a bird, it flutters and  
soars higher and higher.
Can you still see it?
It’s almost out of sight.

Oh! It’s gone!
I wonder where it will eventually land?
That last scarlet leaf of Autumn’s end.
