    Another interesting piece Sal, well written. I too am saddened when I read of how many soldiers come home from the Middle East wars so depressed they feel no recourse but to take their own lives. They didn’t much recognize PTSD as an illness during and after Vietnam but by now,much more should be done to address the sad issue. We owe them so much.

      Anna, when wars drag on year after year, folks in the safety of their non-combative lives give little thought to the despair and depression of returning veterans. It’s as though the act of coming home is reason enough to celebrate when it ought to be the end of wars that only end and maim lives and hardly ever the international disagreements that cause them.

    Perhaps the horror of this flash plot might help us feel more deeply about the rise in combat-soldier suicides, Ken.

    Wow, this story gives you a lot to think about. Very sad, but under certain circumstances this could very well happen. Thanks for this interesting short story Sal..

    Really liked this one, Sal. Good story and thought provoking… “to where they hoped another life would be kinder.”
