Thank you, ladies !
Today's post is going over to ...
I haven't played here before, but I sure liked the sketch !!
I don't make enough square cards.
Here is my card ...
and I fit a little tag in there ...
for those of us who lived through the Vietnam war ...
Mother's Day is tomorrow, and a few years ago I was stopped by a television reporter who asked me "What do you want for Mother's Day ?"
When I said world peace, he looked at me so strangely and asked
"why is that ?"
I am hoping he only asked that to expand on my thoughts, but being he was young and a guy I am not certain, and I said
"that is what all mothers want."
When I was a teen and in my 20's, our boys were subject to the draft. If you haven't known a draft, it was a pretty terrible way of selecting who America would send to war. And what many felt, was into a war for absolutely nothing. We lost nearly 60,000 boys and men, their average age was 19. The ones who came back often fell to drugs, alcohol and post traumatic stress.
I am hoping peace is still what mothers really want.
Peace for all our sons and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends. And all of those in uniform who are in unfriendly territories.
Happy Mother's Day to all !!
