New Theme Song: I remember

I can't seem to escape the war theme lately.  Maybe War and Peace is my new brand.  Or maybe it's always been there, waiting for me to realize.

Anyway, I recently submitted a manuscript about conscientious objection to war. If my protagonist could pick a song that expresses her viewpoint I think it would surely be, I Remember by Griffin House.

I like that this song asks questions without offering easy answers.

One of the many reasons to question going to war is its long lasting effects on veterans and their families. On Veterans Day, I blogged about Post War Trauma and included an excerpt from my book Comfort. I won't post it again here but feel free to hop over and read it.

  1. Powerful song. Someday I should share the poem I wrote about my father as a soldier...the part where the old man is singing with the singer...powerful stuff. How did you find this?
