Wounded, bloody and maimed citizens-
adults and children.
Crammed together-
side-by-side in tents.
White bandages, turned red-
Open human flesh.
Wide-eyed innocence-
Blank stares.
Silence-moaning-wailing
Innocent victims
Devastated souls
Amputees.
SENSELESS BOMBINGS
Never to forget those images-
Undeserving penalties for other human beings
Sad emptiness
Reoccurring memory-
cold shutter.
Dedicated U.S. military-
men and women return home.
Ailing
Disfigured
Crippled
Impaired
bodies.
Flag strewn coffins-
funeral processions.
Changing lives-
Biomedical/engineering education.
Innovative research-
bionic replacements,
tissue growth.
Complex challenge
Innovative thinking
Advocate for others
Solutions,
higher quality of living.
Energetic persistence,
push forward,
spirited determination.
Provide assistance-
Increase others’ self esteem.
Positive achievements-
success!
A true victory…
A dream come true.
