I send my prayer to your you and your son, the flower of a generation that will now protect this great country. Also thank-you for these poetic works.



Now if we can only figure out what to do to stop all this, we will all be better off...mlea I thank you for your prayer and so do all the men and women who are in harms way.

I just sent a prayer for your son and you. Keep your faith, mlea. Amazing, the planetary oxymoron that is that region - the alleged birthplace of civilization, and the fulcrum of ceaseless idiocies. I've been praying!



perhaps we all need to sit around the table a drink a beer?I am so grateful for your thoughts and prayers. Civilization... I have always loved that word. mlea

To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
