It's sappy, but it's indicative as to why I still listen to NPR and why I'm still in the service of the US Navy.
I heard this song on "A Prairie Home Companion" earlier this evening.
It made me cry.
I believe that this song is symbolic of why war is both horrible and beautiful at the same time.
I can not identify this song with anyone I know - or their loved ones. However, I realize that in this- I am an innocent.
I am forever grateful of that kind of innocence.
I am forever grateful for those that give me this innocence.
Semper Fidelis. Hoo Ra. God Bless.
