Yellow Beach


George walked down the beach carrying his shoes. He’d considered throwing the fragment of shell casing into the sea, but instead dropped it in a trash can so it could do no more harm. In the pink of the sunset George closed his eyes and remembered that morning on Yellow Beach when he’d had a lot more than one punch in him. He thought about the men who’d died. Then, with the surf washing over his feet, George thought about the day he’d walked along Daytona Beach hand-in-hand with his bride.
