The fast trade of winds.

Thoughtless testimonials lacking

courage.  Broad strokes of bravery

hold fast against the enemy even

when the heart suggests other courses

of action.


Few know how to step forward.

Dedication is the future from those

who have marched before us, holding

tight the banner, raising the flag; the

common voice becomes a stream and then

a river.


Honor comes at a cost.  Names

inscribed on monuments are the shadows

of who we are.
