THE EARTH SITS IN SILENCE TONIGHT, FOR AN ANCIENT HYMN TO BEGIN AGAIN. NOT WISHING FOR DRUMS OF WAR. BECAUSE WARS ECHO STILL REVERBERATES LIKE THE LONG AGO MUFFLED DRUMBEATS OF SOBBING HEARTS. THE EARTH STILL HOLDS THEM TIGHTLY TONIGHT. REFUSING TO LET GO SUCH PRECIOUS THINGS, WHILE YOUR SPACE BECAME ENGRAVED SORELY.

FRIEND & HERO
I went, to high school, with Mr. Cox and considered him, a friend. I was never in the military, but married, young and was shocked to hear, of the death of Arthur, as well as other guys, I went, to high school with. He and they will always, be hero's, to me. Steve Gilreath

It's funny, to hear a friend, refer, to Rube Cox, as Arthur. We only knew him, as "Cox." He was, my first, Squad Leader, in Vietnam. I was with him, the day he was, killed and actually, carried him out, of the rice paddy, where we were, ambushed. He was, a good man and a gentleman, who did what was asked, of him. His family should know, that this is how, those who served with him, felt, about him. His loss, was especially tough for us, because he was, our leader. We looked up, to him and had, a great deal of respect, for him.

During my visit, to The Vietnam, Memorial Wall, in Washington DC., I searched and found, the names of my friends, classmates, neighbors, etched, into the smooth, black, face, of the Wall, an extraordinary outpouring of emotion, became so strong. I was so overwhelmed, with sorrow and pain, that I could not hold back the tears, for those heroes and their families, who lost, so much. Though my visit, to the Wall was a few years ago, I feel, that I left a piece, of my heart there. To honor, those who died, in the Vietnam War and to say thank you, I created, a small tribute, to those heroes. Please click, on the link above, to view, memorial website.
