Another, Very Different, Christmas Poem

Admittedly, a somber choice for what is meant to be a festive season, but my thoughts tonight take me to a place far from Christmas, and to the young men and women still facing yet another Christmas far from home, young American men and women, still fighting and still dying, every day. Whatever my opinion of the cause, and however unlikely the message of this poem might seem coming from me, I offer it here, in the fervent hope that another Christmas will not have to come without those soldiers safe home to see it in with all of us.
