Sheer Poetry

I know I’m coaching myself into posting on Thursdays, but today being Veterans Day, I know too many veterans not to post this. A friend of mine put it on Facebook and it served as a stark and beautiful reminder of the sacrifice of so many brave men and women so I could have the freedom to sit at my computer and make up stories all day long.  Whatever your political affiliation, please put it aside and remember, people died to give you the right to be contentious. 🙂

With thanks to http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/flanders.htm. Also, if you ever wanted to know what my story notes look like, it’s a lot like the pic below. I’m pleased to see I’m not the only one who gets an idea and must immediately put it on paper.
