A Letter From The Sand 'Be Proud'

A Letter From The Sand 'Be Proud'

Today I received a letter from the sand. It read Dear Sir, we regret to inform you that your brother Sgt. Andre Smith was killed two days ago in Iraq, but be proud he died a hero. Now I must read that letters a hundred times but pride never came over me but anger did. Anger that got me asking questions like is proud of what, that my big brother is no longer here? Or should I be proud that they turned my caring brother into murder all under the false flag of freedom? Be proud, I am proud and I was always proud not because Andre died as hero but I am proud because he was my brother.

Note:
This poem is not a true story. Now although my brother Andre did past away he did not die that way, but I wanted to honor him so I used his name in a poem the relates to current affairs

Your poem is nice but I find it very sad you should use your brother name in this way if he did not die in Iraq as my brother did! You should hang your head in shame as this shows no respect to the men that did really give there lives for this Country. Becarefull what you wish for Because believe me you never want that knock on the Door. Your live would never be the same again! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! 1111
