postscript to excerpt -- War

I know my last post was too long. 

So is the war in Afghanistan. So was the war in Iraq. And so on.

Recently, newspapers have published statistics revealing that veterans from these wars are committing suicide at the rate of one a day.

How abysmal. 

The wars are devastating soldiers in the field and at home -- and our economy.

When will we ever learn?

The last (too long) post chronicled the wars in my life -- that began when I was an infant and persist -- so many decades later-- only changing their locations and the numbers of deaths.

Always too many. 

I think this post is too short but this is all I want to say.

  1. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    A while ago I put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's a collection of short pieces, mostly dark fantasy.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog.

    If so, please email me: Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

    You can download a sample from the ebook's page on Smashwords:

    I'm also happy to do interviews, guest posts, or giveaways. Just let me know what you'd prefer.
