Nothing Fair About It

I met a man today who shared a story with me and I've not been able to get his sad eyes out of my mind. He told me of how he'd served our country in Vietnam.

He told me how he'd lost his brother and a lot of his buddies in that war. And then he told me when he came home he was called "baby killer" and was spat on.

He looked into my eyes and said very quietly , "I dodged a lot of bullets but I couldn't dodge that spit."

That truly is very sad. I can't imagine ever dishonoring one of our servicemen or women.

It was truly a black time in our nation's history when that happened. I had heard about it and read about it but it wasn't the same as talking face to face to a man it happened to. IT Broke my heart.
