War disgusts all humans of integrity…

it disgusts me…

it disgusted my Father…yet…

that was his job as a Warrior of the flesh and he did it well…

Ψ

He paid the price of Mind in the years following…

he grew in Peace through a struggle of many walls of the Mind over years of pain…

he remembered the faces of friend and foe alike…for…

i listened to his horror as we enjoyed what the Sea gave us on beautiful days fishing…

Ψ

My Father was without Fear which could defeat him…

like others of his greatness…

He was called upon by the Fearful to do a job that others do not want to do…this…

was at the Core of his greatness…

Ψ

Judgement of others can come easily to humans who see themselves as better…

I witnessed my Father experience Judgement as we all have, therefore I try not to Judge…

today I remember a Positive Man of Honor and Commitment to not his Religion, Politics or Country…but…

to his Way…

Ψ

I watched this Man of War years later in his old age commit to a Peaceful gesture…

he crossed a crowded San Francisco street to One of Suffering…

a homeless human who some would turn away from…smiling…

he put his hand on the shoulder of the Suffering One and gave what was in his pocket…

Ψ

Selfless…

Fearless…

Kind…a…

Protector of the most important goal…Peace…

Ψ

Improvise, Adapt and Overcome“…

In all that I do…

these are the words I remember and live by…He…

taught me and in honor of Him…I will.
