"'A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America' for an amount of 'up to and including my life. 'That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.'-Unknown" Hello everyone! My name is Chani. I am a stay-at-home wife, caring for my husband. Larry was almost killed in a suicide bombing in Iraq in 2004. I have always loved to write, but hadn't for a long while. I recently decided to pick back up, and I'm enjoying it! I have a few friends that were on this site that recommended it, so I figured, why not? Looking forward to getting to know new people and enjoying the stories and poems!
