August 1968

Today.

a day to remember Yesterdays.

Purposeful Yesterdays

of Freedom over Tyranny.

of Death over Life

Death…

Recalling
those who died.

Died.

so I can have Life
as I do.

As you do.

As we do.

I remember an uncle,
who left this earth
as I arrived.

Richard Orrin Soper

August 1968

in a jungle
on the earth’s
flipside

an enemy
took out his copter
as he
attempted
to
rescue

stranded
friends

rescuing stranded friends.

That
is what today
is about

No matter the war
No matter the cause
No matter the friends

They paid the price
for all friends
now living

May our friendships
persevere
in the face of
any
and all
hardships.

As did theirs.
