***** Daddy, on the 26th, it will be 30, years and nothing's changed. I was, 10, when I saw you last, not much has changed. I'am older now, (39) but it seems like 1969, is where, I allowed myself to stay. I'am not proud of myself. I out lived you. I did not join the army or do anything to save my country. I have not even had children, yet! There is alot wrong with me and "1969," is still, a church bell that echos in my head. Please Daddy, release me from this echo, I'am so tired, so very tired. Momma never re-married, she died, (her fire) when you died and loves you, the same, I mean, the exact same! Really! And so do I. I thought, I would be with you, by now. (no pain, just emptiness) Your SON, Willy
