Scars. 30 staples. Excruciating pain.
It will all be worth it.
Years of captivity. Years of being held prisoner by his war wounds. Years of pain, lost life, no real living.
It will take a few months but the pain will go away.
He won’t be held captive. Won’t be held prisoner by his war wounds. (memories, yes. physical pain, no)
He will live life and will make memories with his four grandchildren.
Can we follow his determination? His strength?
I am trying. One day at a time.
