Happy Veteran's Day

Over 60 years ago,

On the day America declared the Second World War had ended,

Edith Shain was scooped up by a sailor in Times Square,

And kissed...oh, this kiss.

What many don't know is that moments after, he turned one way, and she the other.

No names were exchanged. No words ever spoken.

Two strangers caught up in the moment.


Maybe the romance hasn't been smothered out of me...
Yes, there possibly is a romantic stuffed somewhere deep inside here
struggling to get out.
One day soon I hope to set her free...
Happy Veteran's Day
...kiss your favorite vet for me!
