May we never forget to honor and pay tribute to our fellow classmates who paid the ultimate price and sacrificed their lives in Vietnam. Any one of us could have had our name listed, but it was only by God's Grace that we were spared. We hope and pray that God was with each family during its difficult time.

Struck blind in the brilliance

I waited and watched and when the time came I said nothing. Such is death. It comes quietly without a sound.
