If We Only Understood
Could we only draw the curtain
that surrounds each other's lives,
See the naked heart and spirit,
know what spurs to action drives.
Often we should find it better,
purer than we judge we should,
We would love each other better,
if we only understood.
For those who carry the burden of loss during periods of war.
And a special note to Zack Bazzi's mom today.
For those familiar with the critically-acclaimed film The War Tapes, believed to be the best Iraq War documentary to arrive to date, many of you may remember Zack's mom. Her son is shipping out on another tour tomorrow, this time to Afghanistan. Please say a special wish or prayer for them both. Zack, keeping you in our thoughts. You are a true patriot, a strong leader and a valuable asset to our nation's military. You are also a good friend to all who are fortunate enough to know you.
Be safe, be well, find success and return home soon.
I've posted a diary on Zack's deployment over at Daily Kos.
