When will they ever learn?

that song always makes me think of my favorite uncle Jesse. He used to play with us when we were little, pillow fights and sing alongs. He taught me that song when I was maybe 5.

He died of AIDS in the summer of 1987. His mother, a bastion of the small town Baptist church, was so ashamed and selfish, she didn't tell us until December. How can someone turn on their child so harshly? When she died, no one in my family cared.

That's so sad.

But I'm glad you have good memories of him. *hugs*

They are - they're army cadets, schoolchildren. I think it's sad to see them learning to be soldiers.
