.. if only in my dreams.....

Matt posted a tear-jerker of a story this afternoon about surviving being a Vietnam POW. The story focuses on two POW's; one named Ernie Brace... and the other, John McCain. It's the must-read of the week, I swear.

When you are imprisoned, the enemy can take almost everything from you but they cannot take your spirit. Those unspoken words coming from Ernie - who, due to his work with the CIA , had the least chance of getting out of the camp alive - were a poignant affirmation that as Americans, we possessed a divine spark that our enemies could not extinguish - hope.

"We'll all be home for Christmas. God bless America ."

God bless them all. Every last one....
