We are not about to send American boys 9 or 10 thousand miles away from home to do what Asian boys ought to be doing for themselves.

    Yes, and they all came back – except those whose pieces couldn’t be found. In German language a soldier don’t die but he “falls”.

    Some of the quotes you post leave me completely and utterly speechless. This is one of them. I notice you no longer have a ‘like’ button. Just as well. I find it hard to tap ‘like’ for this type of quote. I ‘like’ that you post them. I feel they support me in staying informed, aware, present.

      Thank you for your kind words. I removed the “Likes” button for the very reason that you outlined so eloquently. My hope is that not having a button will encourage people to leave a comment, express their thoughts and feelings, or start a conversation.

      So far, so good.
