The Wall Didn't Go Well

Nope, I (didn't, couldn't, wouldn't shouldn't) make it to the traveling VietNam Wall.... It just didn't work out for me. It has taken me this long to get back on my blog and write those words for y'all to read... My reasons are my own and my own weaknesses and I'll say no more about that. I did have that beer at this time as I have done for many years. I'll share it one day at the wal when I'm stronger....

I'll be back on here shortly ... Molly told me so ;-)

I have missed you guys

My best as always



  1. That's okay Jay. Your intentions were good. When the time is right you will visit the wall. Things happen in God's time not ours.

  2. Hey.....don't beat yourself up about it. That is something for you to do in your own time. Only you'll know when the time is right. I can't imagine all the feelings that churn up about those days. God bless you, Jay.

  4. I think you just love it when Molly tells you what to do :)
    Seriously, you don't have to explain your actions to anyone. And you are not weak if you didn't visit the wall this time. Everyone deals with issues in their own way, and only you can decide what is right for you. In the meantime, go easy on yourself. Karen

  5. I've been to the Wall in DC, but also the traveling wall when it came to Maine. Both times were extremely emotional for me, as both my step-father and my "uncle" were in Vietnam, and the families of those struggling with PTSD struggle, too. I've never been to war, but I know what it does to those left behind, and it is, indeed, an ugly thing. Those who fight for us, whether or not we believe we belong there in the first place, deserve our respect and our support. And this is a "liberal" speaking. It is not a "conservative" or "liberal" issue - it is a human issue.
