A Flare on the Horizon

Flare on the Horizon - West Virginia

Night falls over West Virginia and our thoughts drift toward the horizon. Amid the fire of battle we can no better discern light from darkness than light from light, but as veterans, we look on from afar and see light and darkness divide and fall into place…from our our perspective we know those moments of glorious light like a flare upon the horizon differentiating the glory of a single moment in our past…we look back and see it for what it was…a tremendous moment when we were in our primes and gave forth our efforts without a thought to the personal consequences…for our moment, we were that brilliant flare on the horizon as the daylight fades out into night. Tomorrow, there will be fresh light with the same intensity and each new generation will have their day.
