I'm not a big fan of Bon Jovi. He's an antigun liberal, that being a deciding factor.
But the song It's My Life has a ring to it and seems appropriate for Veteran's Day.
The movies depicted are of course fiction though the first is modeled after real events in the battle for Bataan.
I remember I had a classmate in grade school whose Dad was a survivor of the Death March.
He was a quiet unassuming guy. His son was a good kid. So it goes.
When I die as it were or whatever you want to call it, I'm requesting they play the slow version particularly.
I take credit for myself whatever that may be.
If those after me want to celebrate my life so be it.
I'd rather they live their own lives.
If I have given them the wherewithal, then it's up to them.
It's their lives.
