Remembering

“Vern let’s go.”

“Where?”

“Anywhere, I can’t sit here all day watching the TV.”

“But that’s what you do every day.”

“I know that.  It’s just all this 9-11 anniversary is getting to me.  I damn near think I’ll cry if I watch anymore. I’m a war veteran. It takes a lot make us cry.”

“Daddy, it’s ok to cry.”

“No, no it’s not.  You younger people live in a messed up world. Our nation’s enemy is faceless and at times it’s even one of us. Just take me somewhere today. I can’t keep seeing that tragic day over and over.”

“Fine, let’s drive out to the apple orchards.”

“That sounds nice.  Sweetheart, you’re a great kid.”
