John Oakes lamented the passage of a friend who despite many fine degrees
and bright opportunities and good friendship from John took his own life.
That war, was it yours & John's war?, was out of Alice in Wonderland by
Heart of Darkness .... The reception we got back home was frosting on the
cake ... A lot of people had a lot of problems putting life back together
... I mean, why aren't 200 million Americans out there screaming with
anguish and anger?
I think he is in a more peaceful place than he ever knew before ... some
would say his soul has learned from this life and is going on to another
fresh start. Your friendship undoubtedly comforted him more than you know
on innumerable occasions, and he is aware wherever he is of his gratitude

"We have shared the incommunicable experience of war...
In our youths, our hearts were touched with fire."
-- Oliver Wendell Holmes (speaking of _our_ Civil War)
I looked at the Wall, and wept, "By what right am _I_ alive?"
