I am unapologetic for being a patriot. I am a Veteran that served in the US Army. I think my perception of many poets, are those who have seen the world without the grit and realism that a Soldier sees. Obviously not all poets fit in a neat Idealistic progressive package. I am one of those that don’t. True American, True Patriot. As writers we are called to express our ink with the experiences, emotions that life has brought us. Hopefully a few readers relate during this pilgrimage. Though I am a true believer in Social and Restorative Justice, the soldier in me has evolved into a pragmatist. We make changes by listening and allowing our senses to to have a 360 degree of enlightenment to other peoples’ point of view, rather than a narrow single scope. Food for thought. Happy Veterans’ Day!
