Hal O'Leary is an eighty-five year old veteran of WWII, who has since come to recognize that all wars have been instigated by profit seekers. As a Secular Humanist, and having spent a life-time in theatre, Hal believes that only through the arts, and in particular poetry, are we afforded an occasional glimpse into the otherwise incomprehensible. He is the recent recipient of an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from West Liberty University.
