the process; continued; draft 2

waitin’ on war daddy

I wrote this after a cathartic yoga session, and after watching the movie Fury, written and directed by David Ayer. I first saw this film when I was in China and have recently be craving another viewing. After doing so, I understand why.

Both my grandfathers served in World War II; one a test pilot, the other a plane mechanic and bore sighter. Both important, dangerous jobs. This solstice I remember and honor their dedication to freedom and family, and for giving me the ability to follow my passions. It took watching this film again to start to comprehend what they went through at that time in history. Most certainly, they both were examples of the #GreatestGeneration.
