I think that this poem shows us the differences of being old and young... we have to be wise for our selves, aware our presents....

I rewrote my resume today. The last item included was:

It should have been first, but my experience since Vietnam (1969) has been too few people understand or appreciate the concepts duty, service, sacrifice and honor. Dotty Parker did.
