The Fifth of July

Yes, you read that right. The fifth of July. Do you know its significance?

On July 5, 1945, General Douglas MacArthur declared the Philippines liberated.

And on July 5, 2023? War Sonnets will be released! After five years and a ton of hard work, War Sonnets is going public.

Copies will be available for sale through Amazon or via this website. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details.

The Americans came closer, their voices louder now, as if they were unconcerned about attack. Tadashi kept his body still, held his breath, and hoped they would pass by without noticing him. The soldiers tramped through the kunai grass, the rough leaves swishing against their uniforms.

They are close, he thought. Too close and there is nowhere to hide.

Tadashi had to decide—life or death. Honor or disgrace.”
