Penelope’s is closed so I sit in Starbucks, leafing through a book, “The Wall, Images and Offerings from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.” I don’t know why I’m compelled do this. It brings nothing but insurmountable grief. Time does not dissipate my anger over war and its wake of havoc. Such moments are not steeped in sentimentality. I think of the words of T.S. Eliot: “We die with the dying; they depart and we go with them ” My destiny is sealed and I shall never know peace.

Thoughts from Dr. Joe by Dr. Joe Puglia This column origninally appeared in the Valley Sun just prior to Veterans' Day 2003. With Veterans' Day being observed today (Thursday, Nov. 11), we believe it's appropriate to run it again with a nod to our veterans as well as to those who have given their lives in service to our country. Last week, after a pre-dawn workout, I stopped at Memorial Park to visit some old friends who had not fared so well. La Cañada was waking up and the metamorphous of dawn to day held the usual sounds of Linda Taix's boot camp, early morning cyclists, the steady staccato of rainbirds bringing water to thirsty soil, and the muted din of automobiles finding their paths to work.
