WW II

Feelings of fear began to appear in my

Freshman year when my best friend’s

Brother was shot and killed on a hill in

France by some mother’s son, who had

Just begun to shave. The war clawed its

Way into our days. Shadows of gloom

invaded our rooms where bombing raids

Shared mind-time with history and geo-

graphy. College plans were put on hold as,

One after another, we were drafted and

Taught how to shoot strangers who posed a

Danger to the world we were preparing to

Inherit.
