Sometimes Bravery is Just Lifting Your Head


(photo credit: unknown)

sometimes bravery
is just lifting your head
high enough to aim
many don’t though
they just shoot
risk losing that head?
and for what?
lots did though, lots died
little metal pellet
turns brains to goo

Oh, Pat I am just getting caught up on my blog reading and I am so sad to read about the loss of your buddy Batman. There is no doubt they are family members and the grief is very real. I wish you peace.

Thanks Vickie!
He was a character. More like a dog than a cat.
We miss him...

Vickie
have you made some changes to your blog? When I clicked on your name "lady" above, a couple of pictures showed up and nothing else...Yet if I go directly to it, it's all there...

~They Call Me Lady~ said...

LOL, well if I did change something I have no idea how !!! Those were "practice" blogs that mysteriously disappeared, I didn't even know they still exsisted... have you considered detective work ??? I will have to get the kids to help the old lady figure it out !!!

Pat Tillett said...

Must be a blogger bug...
The comment you just made came from "They Call Me Lady," the one before just said "lady."

You are right about kids...they have no fear of computers!

Oh, man!

I thought about this when I watched "Hurt Locker." There's that one scene. This gives me chills.
