R.I.F.

A little poetry from my perspective. Working with veterans constantly reminds of how puny the idea of a god is when amputations, loss of sight and worse are not  have no hope of restoration except for the gigantic talents of men and women that create prosthetics and perform life saving surgery.

Reduction in Force

Your attendance has been abysmal.
