A flashback to 2006 and Baghdad
A very powerful reminder of what we've been blessed with, and the levels of courage that those without those blessings are called to exhibit every day. Thanks for your service Penfist and reminding us that there will always be fine, courageous souls who give until they can't.
Thank you for sharing Sunflower Man Penfist. What gentle soul. It cut to my heart and brought tears.
Sorry for the delay in responding. I needed to save this episode for a quiet moment, alone and relaxed. And truth be told, my substack subscriptions and the avalanche of people begging for money are becoming overwhelming. My email inbox is bursting. I may have to trim back. But I will stick with you. Your world view, your sensitivities and the things you care about resonate with me - big time.
This piece was devastatingly beautiful, sad and hopeful.
