I'm a soldier..a coming home soldier

I've been kind of wrapped up in an old emotional wound lately. I'm experiencing a pain that has stayed faithfully by my side for the greatest part of my life and I'm sure will accompany me to the grave. I'm hoping to articulate that pain but for now the only words I can find are," I've been there, I know." These words have value in relation to our servicemen and women now serving in Iraq. They also have value in relation to Cindy Sheehan's plea to the American conscience that we as a nation understand with clarity and honesty the sacrifices we call upon our children to make.
