[Off Topic/Graphic] War is Real; Thanks to Viet Nam Vets for their Service


Forgive me for an off-topic post. I met a couple of Viet Nam War veterans over the weekend. I don’t know if we (our country) has ever given those men the honor and respect they deserve as American soldiers. I’m so happy the war ended before they got to call my number. I’m sorry it didn’t end soon enough for them. I thank them for their service.

“Gimme Shelter,” by The Rolling Stones

Oh, a storm is threat’ning
My very life today
If I don’t get some shelter
Oh yeah, I’m gonna fade away
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away

Ooh, see the fire is sweepin’
Our very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost your way
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
Rape, murder!
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away

The floods is threat’ning
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I’m gonna fade away
War, children, it’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away
It’s just a shot away

I tell you love, sister, it’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
It’s just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away
