Dear Tumblewords: Appreciate your visual realism as applied to the nature of war-like "battle finale". Yes the war to end all wars; finally? When? Soon! Love always wins!
Your post is so appropriate at this challenging time...it seems that war continues no matter how much we wish it were not true. Were it not true...great post.
You have captured the times we live in so well. I am in awe.
