Response to the "Woman at the Wall"
The feelings I got from this poem were a sunken stomach and a heart in my throat. I cant imagine how the "Woman" is feeling. To loose a family member when the soldier most likely was not a volenteer in the war efforts. In the second part she talked about how she prayed to go to let him come back and make everything right again was probably the worst for me to hear. Being a soldier I helpped send over ten soldiers home in boxes and this puts it in more perspective for me. I viewed them as friends, co-worker not brothers sister mothers fathers.
