Don McLean. Oh, my… A song that i “appreciated” as an emo-adolescent – it was cosmic, deep and moving.
Now that i’m a mother? With a 19 year old son? While we’re a nation mired in war? Knowing that the body bags – thousands to date – arrive anonymously at Dover AFB. Distributed to small and large towns across the US. And young men and women are put in the earth…
I was wondering who would comment on McLean.
I’ve loved the song forever and thought it was appropriate and beautiful for today.
A 19 year old son? I just can’t imagine.
Three daughters for me.
In many ways, I am truly blessed
Thanks for the comment, DF
While I can and do honour the sacrifices of the soldiers, I still can hate the wars forced upon us by old men who never fight themselves.
Oh, the truth really hurts, Archie.
Couldn’t agree with you more.
Sometimes I wonder just how much they think about the young men and women fighting.
Today, we remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Nice post Michael, I’m guessing that memorial day is like our remembrance day, which is different to ANZAC day.
The theme suits the post btw
Take it easy buddy
Taking it easy Kell.
Beautiful day, grill fired up and ready, Guinness poured, cigar lit.
It’s all good.
And yeah, the theme definitely suits the post.
Love this theme. Love it.
I do, however, need a plugin lesson.
