CHAD HUNT



"PFC Heather Ragan, 19, Oklahoma City, 554th MP Co"


“I don't agree with a lot of policies. The army and its policies, its attitudes towards anyone different, regardless of sex, race, religion, or even sexual preference that has to change. Until then, they just lost one more person willing to fight for our country. I've done my time."

ROBERTO DE LUNA

FROM "FACING WEST, FROM CALIFORNIA'S SHORES"
Walt Whitman (1819–1892). Leaves of Grass. 1900.
"Facing West from California’s Shores"

Facing west, from California’s shores,
Inquiring, tireless, seeking what is yet unfound,
I, a child, very old, over waves, towards the house of maternity, the land of migrations, look afar,
Look off the shores of my Western Sea—the circle almost circled;
For, starting westward from Hindustan, from the vales of Kashmere,
From Asia—from the north—from the God, the sage, and the hero,
From the south—from the flowery peninsulas, and the spice islands;
Long having wander’d since—round the earth having wander’d,
Now I face home again—very pleas’d and joyous;
(But where is what I started for, so long ago?
And why is it yet unfound?)
