Thursday Leaky Eyes Post

Damn, I hate when my eyes leak; though I am also relieved when my eyes leak — it means my eyes are making tears again; I’ve been generally dry-weeping for about three years now. So, what, you ask (or even if you don’t ask) made my eyes leak? What made this bitter mean mouthed old bitch/witch sniffle and then sob?

Because THIS is a salute to two young men who had three war tours under their belts when they died by age 22. I am glad one of those young hearts is still beating. I am glad the other one will forever have “fireworks” while helicopters still fly in Afghanistan.

And then? Then I consider the veterans who have lived through the wars and cannot get care they will need for life. I consider that the government’s budget office shut the purse-strings to building VA clinics for political reasons.

My eyes apparently can leak with rage, too.
