MICHAEL DAVIS O'DONNELL
American soldier
(1945 - 1978)

If you are able,
  save them a place
    inside of you
      and save one backward glance
        when you are leaving
          for the places they can
            no longer go.
              Be not ashamed to say
                you loved them,
                  though you may
                    or may not have always.
                      Take what they have left
                        and what they have taught you
                          with their dying
                            and keep it with your own.
                              And in that time
                                when men decide and feel safe
                                  to call the war insane,
                                    take one moment to embrace
                                      those gentle heroes
                                        you left behind.
      - written at Dak To, Vietnam, January 1, 1970
        [Remembrance : War]
