I wrote a few days ago about the soldiers -- I'd been lucky enough to read some beautiful poems from a soldier...
Last night I got a note -- I wanted to print part of it today.

... our soldiers ... understanding of the human side of our work. We are fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, sons, and daughters committed to doing our job; right or wrong. Survival overseas, in that environment, has nothing to do with our personal politics or the struggle for energy sources which date back many, many years. It is simply human beings protecting each other, with the hopes of returning home safely...

Robert Capa 1938

May you be safe.
