Poems written to remember those soldiers who served and lost their lives in the Iraqi War. The body bags keep coming back. Because those that made this sacrifice did it from their hearts. They left behind promising futures, families, and jobs, to protect us - or so they were told. This book is dedicated to them. But most of all... this book is dedicated to peace.
Through her poetry, Cecilia brings light to the pain brought to American families through the loss of life and sanity in a war half a world away. There is so much pain that goes untold or that we choose not to see. Every night when the lights turn down, somewhere in the land there is a broken heart: for the widows and the orphans, for the parents, for the aunts and grandparents, for all the lives caught in this surge, for the people behind the numbers and the news.
