    STORM COMING - 2

    The fog moving between the trees along Squaw Creek made it seem as if the valley were breathing. This is good ground. Sacred.


    This ground has been treaded by warriors chosen to wear the Cardinal and the Gold; treaded by warriors that defend this place named after the one man fought and lost his life on the field… The man that stands as a legend that represents - Treading New Paths - Exceeding Expectations – Honor Before Victory.


    The General rises to his mount. In the distance he hears the bells between the claps of thunder. In his veins flow pride. Its time to fortify, hold this ground, and stake their claim on history.


    I WILL

    Re: STORM COMING - 2

    Can we get a Prose and Poetry group added to the Social Groups so I don't accidentally click on something like this again?

    Sorry, I know you mean well and all. Or maybe you're just drunk at 1:25 AM


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    Re: STORM COMING - 2

    Considering the type of prose you seem to be shooting for here, I would recommend "trod" as the past tense of "tread" rather than "treaded". Just a thought.

    Technically, shouldn't it be "trodden"? Disclaimer: I sucked at English.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
