Fighting wars doesn’t always look like the movies.
Sometimes it  looks like dropping the kids off at school,
and fighting a few battles before picking them back up at 3.

It’s phone calls while making dinner,
and emailing evidence before
meeting friends for drinks.

It’s checking homework,
while running through the story
one more time in your mind.

Wars can be won in between
the mundane activities of the day,
so the world can be better
for those that come behind us.
