    The forgotten veterans, those who came back home only to be turned away, we tend to forget about them until it all touches us personally. This was heart breaking sage, I hope he has found the peace his soul has been searching for. Such an emotive write sis. I am sorry for your loss, peace to you and yours.

    What a sad life to kill..death. This story broke my heart ...but all that he didn't have the pleasure of seeing and feeling, will be seen and felt through you.
    We enter the world one minute, and every minute after that...we prepare for death.

    Awww, girl. I am wiping the tears from my eyes and wishing so much I could hug you right now. What a beautiful tribute to the man. I feel like I can see him, you write so well. Much love and peace to you and your uncle at this time, and always. Love you, Sage.

    This was a beautiful Poem. I hope that this theme can be spread nationally so that people ignorant to the plight of a war veteran can see the pain that these people endure.
