G.I.'s
When GI Joe and Jane 
Marched safely home again 
A grateful nation cried... 
In their homeland they died

Article in wikipedia reads in part: 
On November 5, 2009, a gunman opened fire in the Soldier Readiness Center of Fort Hood, killing 13 people and wounding 30 others. The gunman, Nidal Malik Hasan, a U.S. Army Major and psychiatrist, was shot and incapacitated by civilian police officers Kimberly Munley and Mark Todd. 

Words could not express the emotions I feel as I think about the senseless murders recently in Texas. Instead of taking initiative to deal with it, the politicians and officials are in their usual "blame-game". 

May God have mercy on out ignorance and arrogance! 
I fear we have become so wise, we are but fools. 

I offer my prayers to the families and I pray for a swift and exact punishment for the perpetrator. 

May God continue to bless America and guide her in truth and justice!
