Gatekeeper Posted November 22, 2013 Share Posted November 22, 2013 November 22, 1963 I was in uniform on the drill floor It was competition day one squad at a time My fellow students were doing well we were headed for a win all the moves were correct all the uniforms neatly aligned But I remember nothing of the winners or the losers I honestly don't know how the squad I led finished No one cared how it turned out even as we finished the drill our actions were on auto-pilot our heads swimming in fear The President was dead the Colonel had said! Were we suddenly at war? Who could do such a thing? We were nearly paralyzed! But there was duty to be served leading a daily honor guard to lower the half-staff flag until the acute fear subsided The chemistry of the brain fixes such an unexpected event much like a sculptor would reveal the form as if done in an instant 112113 / 2222 Quote from the black desert Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
