To Thee,
O Lord,
I lift up
my soul.
[25:1]
******************
"I'm tired, Lord."

"Yes,
child."

(Squint up at ceiling.)
(Stare at a molecule
in the air.)

[SILENCE.]

(Sigh.)
"It's been a long day."

[PATIENT NOD.]

(Close eyes.)
(Lean forehead on palm.)
"But....
I bet,
it's been a
longer day...."

[GAZE DOWN AT THE EARTH.]
[CARESS THE FACE OF A
YOUNG AMERICAN SOLDIER,
FAR FROM HOME AND IN PRAYER.]

(Look up at the ceiling.)
"For those guys*,
overseas."

[A TENDER BREEZE
BLOWS ACROSS THE
TOMB OF THE UNKOWN
SOLDIER.]
**********************
Though a host
encamp
against me,
my heart
shall not fear;
though war
arise
against me,
yet
I will be confident.
[Psalms 27:3]


*Men and women.

______________
In memory:
the people who gave
their lives for
my beloved country.
