That Sound

“Living in the DC area has its challenges. But one thing I know is that it makes it that much harder to ignore what’s going on around you,” writes Allison Brown. “I don’t live all that far from Andrew’s, and many nights, as I lie in bed, I hear the sound of those transports coming in for a landing. I don’t know if I’d just ignored the sound before, or if it is occuring more often now, but knowing that those planes are carrying the secret wounded just makes me more determined to fight this battle we’re fighting. I only wish everyone could hear that sound, and know what it represents. It might make our war that much easier to win.”
