What the world needs now......

    Having been through many wars, Mrs Ozzie just asked me to pen a few poetic words for her on the topic of peace (that follows war):

    Ah, peace, how sweet the sound

    How sweet the still.

    Demons have fled

    Gone to steal another peace.

    Gone are the days of houses crashing,

    Of men all bloodied with bodies smashing.

    Demons have fled

    Gone to steal another peace.

    Ah, peace, how sweet the sight

    Of all in brotherhood do I see.

    Demons have fled

    Gone to steal another peace.

    Thanks H.S. I think we have a way to go yet before we're "on the up".

    That was lovely Ozzie...I hate war and conflict...even the type of war where blood does not spill.

    Peace to you and Mrs Ozzie always!!

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Ozzie,

    I am with you but not so poetic. We are facing a difficult time and are just beginning to feel the affect of what is ahead. I hope you both are coping with your situation, because we are right behind you.

    Beautiful words Ozzie - I didn't know you were a poet!
