For some reason, probably because of our trigger-happy president, I’ve been thinking about Vietnam a great deal recently. Actually, less thinking of Vietnam and more feeling it. Recalling the feelings of that era — the war, the protests, the unrest, the division. Kent State haunts my remembrances. I fear something like, or something much worse, will soon occur. Coming across your story was synchronistic. And, it is a horribly great story, reminding me that we really don’t know what is happening and what our government is doing or causing. To think that presidents I supported allowed atrocities I would never support, leaves me even more fearful of what our current glory-seeking nut-job will do. Such are my thoughts in the darkness of night.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
