    From Father to Son, Last Words to Live By

    He drew pictures of himself with angel wings. He left a set of his dog tags on a nightstand in my Manhattan apartment. He bought a tiny blue sweat suit for our baby to wear home from the hospital.

    Then he began to write what would become a 200-page journal for our son, in case he did not make it back from the desert in Iraq.

    I'm reminded of A.E Houseman's "1887":

    Oh, God will save her, fear you not:
    Be you the men you've been,
    Get you the sons your fathers got,
    And God will save the Queen.


    Let's pray this son becomes the man his father was.

    Our men and women make significant sacrifices each and every day for our freedom and our way of life.

    I salute them!
