Monsters in the Dark -- a poem by one of our fallen heroes

Monsters in the Dark

I know that they are out there
I will not be ignorant any more
Pulling the blanket over my head
Will not keep them from coming ashore
Instead I choose to confront them
As afraid as I might be
Because if I don't stop the monsters
Our children can never be free.

Master Corporal Jeffrey Scott Walsh wrote this
before he was killed in Afghanistan, August 9, 2006.

His father, Benjamin Morris Walsh, proudly posted this
poster of his son's work on Facebook
