The letter is V for Veritable
I have chosen this word for V because I find it has always filled me with such confidence.
How could you not be fond of a word that expresses
genuine, factual, indubitable, unquestionable,
authentic, reliable, trustworthy, valid and true.
Would you not say that these
children are listening to
a VERITABLE storyteller?
. . . . . . . . .
On the other side of the coin
the word Veritable holds a little sadness,
reminding me of that last great push
by the Allies in the effort to end
World War Two
was the northern part of an Allied Pincer
movement that took place during
the final stages of the war and in which
the Canadian Army played an important part.
My husband's brother was killed here,
in a meadow just across from
the Hochwald Forest.
Such a sad place to die...
a veritable tragedy.
more Vs here at ABC Wednesday. with thanks
to all who maintain this veritably wonderful meme.
