To the Grief Stricken Family of Parker Schenecker

I can't write much about this today, I am so distraught over what has happened to this family.  My heart goes out to them.

Tragedies of War

Horrors of war what you take!
Always there is too much at stake!

Freedom and liberty are dear, to be sure.
Oh but what some have to endure.

Year after year longing for a love which is far,
Never really knowing exactly where they are.

Cries for help are a fearful thing,
She did not know what they actually might bring.

Pain can grow inside a heart,
Until gradually, slowly, reason departs.

Little daily things grow like a monster,
And suddenly they explode in dark disaster.

The black ink of evil forces over her mind did steal,
Rendering wounds from which she will never heal.

When sanity began once again to reign,
Her heart and soul realized unspeakable pain.

It will never be counted as a casualty of war,
But always I promise to remember who you really are.
