Looks like something Whittier would've written. A good read, tho' I can't get the music to load! EGADS! As a vet, I did my own special thanks. Enjoy the last day of the hol,C.M.

I guess its the same Idea As "Poppy Day" on the 11th Nov in the UK ("the 11th Day of the Month of the 11th Hour").I always have mixed feelings about these occassions.Its Good We Remember.Tis A Pity we never Learn...........
Great & Moving Post Sir.Thank You.

Certainly there is nothing so terrifying as someone with the absolute assurance of their own unwavering virtue.

Oh, no! My computer audio isn't working so I'll have to look up the words.

Have a blessed Memorial Day, my friend!

Hi! C.M.,
Thanks, for sharing the very interesting...illustration of Mark Twain, The War Prayer cover by Mark Twain, the quote and the music.

Take care!

I stopped by. Thanks for any kind of memory to anyone on any side and anyone who is concerned about war and peace.

I guess if I could write like anyone it would be Mark Twain...or F. Scott Fitzgerald. Now there's a comparison! But maybe not so far fetched. They each reflected the worlds in which they lived.

cg: Yes, I believe if I could ever write, Twain/Vonnegut would surely be the style I myself would choose
