Nothing fascinates people like war does. We like to fight war and hate war. After the dust is settled and the dead are buried, we try not to forget what we fought for.

Remeberthewar.com is a online presentation covering all the history of WWII.

Random Thought: Cliche VS. Adage

“You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.”

Cliche or adage? All depends on the context. Any pithy statement takes on a cliche connotation when impetuously prated.

But, assign the phrase to a situation of significant value, and the once cliche becomes a maxim.

For me I did not have to lose what I value; instead, I almost loss. If you almost lose your life; the life of another; or your marriage, suddenly: “You don’t know what you have until it’s almost gone.”

Now I am grateful– but I fear time– because time always erodes the grateful into cliche and once again we await the maxim to come.

Sincerely and ever truly yours,

Tool’s music translates so well; simply intoxicating.

Music: Staind “It’s Been A While”

Heard this song on the radio today. Just about every white-middle-class-American’s anthem: at one point or another, in their life.

The song is full of cliche but I don’t care because the lyrics are so easy to relate to.
