MLK "I want my 4 children to be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."

Training to war,
Friends are lost, strength is gained,

To see their face,
To see no injuries,
“You’re here!”

The author's comments:
A poem about the life of soldiers and their family members. Showing how hard it is for the woriers family's to go through everyday thinking what would happen if their loved ones got hurt or even killed. Unfortunately this happens everyday because of the war going on in Affganastan. So this poem is dedicated to all who have lost someone in a war. I don't completely understand but I wish they didn't have to either.
