October, 1945 has gone down in history as being the month in which the Second World War ended. The boys were coming home but they weren't boys anymore. Six years in war torn Europe has changed them, forced each one to grow up quickly. Many were returning home, many never would. Numerous thoughts rushed through Bob Walker's mind and he savored each one as it came. Tomorrow would begin a new chapter in his life and her looked forward to the change. Bob thought of the sun as it rose over the treetops and danced on the waters of a cold clear lake. A large Canadian goose swimming lazily as his family ate and prepared for the long flight south. A beaver swam nearby, hurrying to finish his house before the first snowfall.
