Just needed to “capture” this – as it is from a long dead Blog I once ran and I did not want it to get lost.

———————

They’re just names…
On paper…
On the news…
On the radio…
Hardly mentioned at all…

They’re just names…
Of fathers…
Of sons…
Of brothers…
Not important at all…

They’re just names…
Of mothers…
Of daughters…
Of sisters…
But all answered a call…

The call of a country…
Attacked…
In fear…
Outraged…
They’re just names…

Through the ages…
The list of names has grown…
To most, they’re just names…
Until they are one of your own…
Are they just names?
