The people in my home town will join hands and hearts into a community celebration
Honoring those who served in the war.
There will be parades, and dances and assemblies, and all of those extra sidelights characteristic of civil promotion when towns people get together as neighbors to pay tribute.
There will be a festive air of the gayety with all of the trimmings for the men and women
Who came back ----and solemn moments of prayer for those who didn't.
The streets will be lined with flags and decorations; the merchants of the town
Will have adopted holiday hours; all of the civil organizations will pitch in with energetic
Fevor; and almost everyone will contribute in someway to provide a homecoming
Our veterans will long remember.
Some of the speakers in this little community are exceptionally good, of course their
Comments won't be reprinted in the metropolitan dailies----and there is little likelihood
That there will be official recognition in Washington-----but the orations of our public
Officials and our teachers are worth listening to, believe me,principally because these speeches are more than a conglomeration of words-----they are sincere, they are honest, they are genuine as a heartbeat.
When reference is made to the many names in gold on the honor roll in our park the people here won't be thinking of declamatory technique.
We won't need pretty words to tell us how much we lost. These will be hollowed memories we cherish. This town will contribute something for which there is no
Compensation, the people shall carry the wounds of the dead in their hearts.
Perhaps the proudest in the assemblage are the kids who will escape the blights
Of the awful struggle-----the kids who will listen to the speeches with awe and a fierce rapture, but who shall wait long years before they can understand that their bodies are
Free from the scars because other living bodies had sheather the daggers of man's
Lust and greed.
And while the good people of my hometown will be making speeches, and paying tribute
And expressing their appreciation-------other men, whose comments are regulatly reprinted in the metropolitan dailies are busy preparing for a colossal experiment in the art of scientific destruction.
Atomic energy, with all its monstrous power will be unleashed in an effort to gauge
Its scope of annihilation. Can we wreck an armada with one bomb? Can we deface a
Country? Can we split the ocean?Can we devastate a continent?
These are weighty problems confronting learned men who have spent exhaustive
Years in libraries and laboratories searching for the hidden secrets of a greater civilization. At one of the devotional services marking the homecoming celebration,
The speaker shall refer to the sacrifices of our youth as " the final guarantee that peace
With all its ultimate glory, shall be the heritage of all our generations,"
It will sound so inspiring, that one will almost forget the atom bomb......One will almost forget that man is interested in progress.

{But one will never forget the sorrows and tragedy's thrust upon them by the real loser......The President Of the United States}

Yes my friend i understand, but this war is not to preserve our freedom, this war is George Bush's war, a war of revenge, it has become a breeding ground for terrorist, a civil war, i have served in the military with pride and would do so again for my country , but not for the sake of one man who thinks like a dictator and who cares not for the men and women serving our country, we all have our opinions, this is mine and i respect yours.
thank you

Bill my friend !

That was quite a blog. I can honestly say I could not agree with you more.
Having done my time in the Corps. I completely agree with you on every
point. I also served with pride and dignity. Eight years in Nam. But this IS
one man war. A war of revenge. And we The People are paying for it in so
many ways.
I only wish I could give you all my kudo's
