Just Another Day

On this day that we set aside to honor those who have given their life for our country, I feel it is also appropriate to give thought and prayer for those who are today defending our freedoms. It is with that in mind that I offer the following to our heroes serving in Iraq.

Tension
Hangs palpably
In the Humvee.

Suspicion
Fills the air
As they stare

With caution
At the eye
Of passersby.

Reaction
As the crowd
Screams out loud.

Compassion
Lights their way;
It is another day

In Fallujah.
