Veterans Day 2015


I think now, looking back, we did not fight the enemy; we fought ourselves. The enemy was in us. The war is over for me now, but it will always be there, the rest of my days. As I'm sure Elias will be, fighting with Barnes for what Rhah called "possession of my soul." There are times since, I've felt like a child, born of those two fathers. But be that as it may, those of us who did make it have an obligation to build again. To teach others what we know, and to try with what's left of our lives to find a goodness and a meaning to this life.

This strikes me as THE definition of sanity worthy to be attached to the mustering out papers of every man and woman released from active duty today.
