I recently saw the sketch that accompanied the poem "Hold On." I stumbled upon it while in the Reserve Officer Training Corps office and was instantly moved by its emotional depth.
In appreciation for his idea, I drew the sketch in my own interpretation. I have taken no credit for the idea when others have seen my work. I made it very clear that merely the pencil marks were my own, but the real credit belonged to the Soldier responsible for the sketch (featured in the May 2010 issue of Soldiers).
I do wish it wasn't anonymously sent, so I could properly acknowledge him for his work. I'm writing this for perhaps no other reason than to show an appreciation for the armed forces and the sacrifices they make.
