  • A fine man who should have lived not died in a tragic war

    Posted on 9/21/18 - by Harry J. Fletcher waltznjack@verizon.net
    I think of Norman Buell from time thru the years and often ask why did he have to die? He had so much to offer had he lived.

    I have finally been drawn to God and Christ in my later years and I asked the same question, why? I had a very good friend whose father was missionary in China and he was active in the Chinese church here where I live but died of cancer just a few short years ago. Again, I asked why? I had another friend who was formerly in the navy who married and raised a family. He died of cancer not long ago too. Why? Finally, I was reunited with a member of my machinegun crew in Vietnam who had survived some really bad situations with me. We were friends for years until he just died two years ago from cancer. He was a very good person, likeable, friendly to everyone. Again I asked myself why?

    I think we have to accept God's will and his plan for us. Maybe Norman fulfilled God's plan for him on Earth so he was taken as were my other three friends. I think I have found my answer.

    I know that Norman lives in my heart, in my wife's heart, and the hearts of all the those I have told about his selfless devotion to duty, his dedication, and the risks he took to treat the wounded.
