What might a veteran have to say?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Fri Apr 22, 2011 1:10 pm

I took some time for a veteran today
I stood and listened to what he had to say
He spoke of health, Agent Orange, tests and grief
his wife and children suffering beyond belief
He didn't cry nor shed even a single tear
about what Agent Orange has done, up to this year
He spoke of his daughter who is going blind
from Agent Orange being passed on in kind
He wished me a happy coming Easter too
Asked what else was there for a person to do?
My heart is sad and my thoughts weigh a ton
for all the heartache given out to this one.

Agent orange... a link to a site that gives a load of insight.

breezey i just read nearly all of this site, I'm stunned , how can those chemical companies get away with it all so easily,how can they not care about their own people ? definitely money talks.
i like your poem, despite the sadness of it, you bring the message across.

Roxanna... chemical companies made that crap and many others, but... the USAGE of it was way over a safe level.. it was used at a much higher strength level than it should have been and nobody cared what it would do to anyone being around it or having it basically dumped on them.

This man's last daughter.. she is going blind, but also has a lot of other problems. He said her face was so swollen up that he didn't even recognize her. Sad His other two children are already gone.

I am still trying to figure out if this crap could have somehow been spread from one person to another.. not just to children.
