Uniform, Or Armor...?

Some see a series of white shirts. Maybe it's the wardrobe of a worker for IBM back in the day. Perhaps it's for a person who will only wear white collared shirts, or someone who doesn't want to "go crazy" and be caught wearing such anti-establishment colors like, blue.

Some see shirts; I see armor. Physics say the material won't stop bullets, but it can help change a life. Those who wear this armor are called by many names, though I prefer soldiers. The clothes will draw attention, both wanted and unwanted. The wearer will experience highs and lows, successes and failures, memories them all.

Some see nothing but clothing, clothing that can be bought at almost any clothing store. Many consider white to be a color of weakness, of retreat, of surrender. However, I choose to see white differently. White is pure, clean and those are signs of strength. And this strength will protect. Uniform or armor? I say the latter.
