Anguish

By Remy Benoit

    During war terrible things happen and those  terrible things live on in the  hearts, minds, souls of those who knew them.

    This war is generating a new group of Veterans who will have much healing to do; who will need help.

    At the same the proposed budget calls for vast cuts in Veteran care. Is that how we keep our unwritten Covenant?  Be there for us, and we will be there for you...

    Domestic areas require much help.

    The people of Iraq will also need much help.

    Waging war brings new responsibilities, vast  responsibilities.

    How we meet them is a measure of who we are.
