Remembrance/Veteran’s/Armistice Day & Still Sick
On this day when we remember all those wasted lives, the suffering, and wonder at our continuing futility in human relations I always think of one of the most profound sayings I've come across in my extensive readings,“War results from the triumph of hope over reality”. Never have I heard truer words about such a devastating subject. Meanwhile I slouch around my place pitying my pathetic person. No improvement in my condition – could I possibly have an infection in my lungs?
