War by Jane Brack

A young man gazes, in deep thought, at a statue at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. It was a long and controversial war, which brings with it, so many emotions. A war that left many Americans bitter and angry. The statue is of three men carrying infantry weapons and looks onward towards the Wall. It creates a moving evocation of the experience and service of the Vietnam veteran. When gazing upon it, one can’t help but think about what it must have been like, the sacrifices, the hardships, the what if’s; the questions one might ask themselves, like, “what must it have been like to be in those soldiers’ shoes”, “in their loved ones’ shoes”, or “what will it be like if they join the military and go off to fight for our country one day”? I wonder what this boy was thinking. Maybe all of the above.

My heartfelt thanks to all the Vets who have put your lives on the line, who have died and who have returned safely, but we know, are never the same. My deepest gratitude for all of the sacrifices that you have made and the sacrifices that the children who follow your footsteps will make. You will always be my hero!
