Memorial Day

Day is done, gone the sun
From the lakes, from the hills, from the sky
All is well, safely rest
God is nigh.
Fading light dims the sight
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright
From afar, drawing near
Falls the night.
Thanks and praise for our days
Neath the sun, neath the stars, neath the sky
As we go, this we know
God is nigh.

God bless the souls and families of those that have given the ultimate price for the liberty and freedom that we live with today.

One Response to “Memorial Day”

  1. Patrick Sperry Says:

    My comment over at BIW’s blog;

    Gads, some people… Anyways, yes, Courageous is, according to my stepson and grandsons an exceptional film. After living nearly all of my life surrounded by misandry, radical feminism, and the portrayal of men as being nothing more than bumbling fools combined with innate evilness it has become a must see.

    I have, over the years looked back on things that happened to me as I made my path through life. “Heroes,” is a word often used about men and women that don’t look at it that way. Not at all. Growing up where I did, on Camp Pendleton, I had the opportunity over the years to see several men that had a pretty blue ribbon on their chest. To a man, they thought of themselves as nothing more than just another Marine that did his job when it needed to be done. Same situation later in the Army. Just another Dogface or Ranger doing what he was supposed to do. Again, in Public Safety, be they Police Officers, Sheriffs deputies, Firefighters, Paramedics and EMT’s, it’s the same. Doing what needed to be done. Nothing special.

    What have I learned in my sixty years? That uncommon valor really is not all that uncommon. People just fail to recognize it when it happens right under their noses.
