    The Heart Wears A Flak Jacket

    In my youth my heart was open to others allowing them in my life. We shared the hardships, joys and secrets we each carried with in our souls. We allowed ourselves to care for each other. This may seem strange to some yet it is a coping defense we share a brotherhood with...
