I Met You In The Rain On The Last Day Of 1972


James Michael Sama

I met you in the rain on the last day of 1972, the same day I resolved to kill myself.

One week prior, at the behest of Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger, I’d flown four B-52 sorties over Hanoi. I dropped forty-eight bombs. How many homes I destroyed, how many lives I ended, I’ll never know. But in the eyes of my superiors, I had served my country honorably, and I was thusly discharged with such distinction.

And so on the morning of that New Year’s Eve, I found myself in a barren studio apartment on Beacon and Hereford with a fifth of Tennessee rye and the pang of shame permeating the recesses of my soul.

You can enjoy the present moment with, but also envision a future with.

You can enjoy nights out with, but also sit in comfortable silence.

You can be young and crazy with, but also picture being old and wise with.

You admire.

You respect.

You are proud to be with.

You smile just thinking about.

You would do anything to spend time with.

You make a priority in your life.

You can picture raising children with.

You genuinely miss when they are not around…

Fall in love…

Here we are, in the 21st century. Gen-X’ers, Millenials, Gen-Whatever’ers are having a hard enough time as it is navigating massive student loan debts, high rents, and a difficult job market. To add the icing on the cake, they are floundering through the dating world slash hookup culture and quickly discovering that nobody knows what the hell they are doing.

That’s probably because there is no structure. There is no methodology. There is no progressive course of events. And many times, there are really no role models out there leading by example for what to even do.
