Hi, Everyone,

We have decided to close the Almanac forums.

The good news: Now you have the ability to comment on the www.Almanac.com Web site pages!

The Web site has grown tremendously, with 12 million readers every month. You'll find folks who are weather watchers, gardening enthusiasts, stargazers, and more. Find advice, get answers to questions, and share your experiences.

Find the Almanac here, too!

Finally, a big THANK YOU to all those who have participated in and looked after the forums over the years!

Sincerely,

“SURVING SOLDIERS HURT”

On one side mankind screamed, “This is War, your enemy you must kill!”
On the other side Jesus listened quietly – I understood his silence as my God’s will.
Now so many years later, torturous memories roar thru my dreams,
Is Jesus trying to speak, thru the echoes of my long dead enemy’s screams?
I snap awake some nights to stop the horror, still feeling the Surviving Soldiers Hurt,
There stands Jesus with all of my dead enemies, now just a handful of dirt.
The dirt disappears thru his fingers, as with both hands he gently cradles my soul,
With this wondrous act of forgiveness, Jesus speaks, making an old soldier once again whole.
