For many of us, this is life.
For an increasing number of us, this is life. For returning soldiers, this is life.
Life is good, and peaceful.
Then it is not, and painful.
I have written about my life. Sometimes, the dogs are laughing, and keeping me warm.
Sometimes the star teenage athlete in town takes drugs ane eoes inexcrable things.
We all, all, live this life. We just don't want to admit it.
