He Paid The Price


Blog Posted:1/11/2011 6:09:00 AM
 

The young man limped to

chair, dragging his despair

with a cheerful air.

I see that all your footwear

is at half price, that is quite

relevant seeing that I have

only one leg. Don't worry

I am not going to ask for

half of half price, for I have

paid the full price before, I

will keep the other shoe as

a token of memory.

The young ex soldier left

the shop in step with life.


We owe so much to thesegallant men and women

    I love that ending line "in step with life" And that attitude will get him very far! Was this something you wrote yourself? It's wonderful.

    Welcome to the Soup. My brother is a disabled Nam vet. Luckily, my career never took me into battle (30 yrs). God Bless the troops of every nation. Vince
