A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. – Thomas Campbell
I was a proud veteran that served my country well to those that would listen I had many stories to tell. We fought for America’s freedom in far away places on foreign land. Wherever the battle for democracy raged, America’s finest made a stand. We fought for your future and the right to remain free. For we saw what freedom meant to those not blessed with Liberty. For you and yours we would gladly have given our life. We faced the fears and perils of battle we braved endless turmoil and strife. Please remember us veterans and the sacrifices we made for you. Please share the blessings of freedom, proudly wave the red, white and blue.– Lynne Carey
God looked around His garden And found an empty place. He then looked down upon the earth And saw your tired face. He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest. God’s garden must be beautiful He always takes the best. He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids And whispered “Peace be thine”. It broke our hearts to lose you But you didn’t go alone, For part of us went with you The day God called you home.- Anonymous
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heavens
You can shed tears that she is gone, Or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back, Or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left. Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her, Or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday. Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her only that she is gone, Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, Be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what she’d want. Smile, open your eyes love and go on.
Remember Me; I will remember you. – Surah-Al-Baqarah 2:152
We will not forget. In Flanders fields the poppies blow. Between the crosses, row on row.~Remembrance Day
When you go home….. When you go home, tell them of us and say: For their tomorrow, we gave our today.
Lest we forget … Remembering and honoring our heroes.
Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were. — Marcel Proust
