In Our Defense



(a shadorma)

Freedom is
taken for granted
by many.
I have fought
for it, and I will do it
again if needed.

P. Wanken

 ** in honor of my friend and hero **

Inspired by
Poetic Asides PAD Challenge prompt #11:
“From a Veteran.”
and posted as Day #8 for the “100 Days of Fall/Winter 2012” challenge.


    1. Sara, I could have labeled this a “found” poem…it’s nearly a word-for-word excerpt from my friend’s response to someone criticizing America. I’m proud of him.
