The Sea, the eternal sea, waits!
Time flows in waves washing;
The constant flow of both mingle;
Overlapping and intertwining.
Remembrance of War
War , the conflict of men and ideals, bloody, with great economic cost, has much to be remembered.

D-Day; June 6th 1944. The most significant undertaking to bring balance and sanity to a world torn apart by war.

There are acts of war, and there are acts of cowardice. September 11th, 2001 was one of the most dastardly act of cowardice.
