Belated Pearl Harbor Day

The Stone
(by R.P.Edwards)

At first
With meaning
And grieved 
As loved ones
But time
The tie
Of skin
And blunts
The awful 

Most of my "Pearl Harbor" day was spent at work. So, what should have been published on the 7th, is now assigned to 8.

Nothing new here. The farther from the conflict, the sacrifice, the pain; the more blurred the lines. There are few World War IIers left. And, the "values" of that generation are also weakening.

Enough said. Following is a song written with the Greatest Generation in mind. Rather long, but there's a lot to say.
