My Heros Slide Show

This is to remind everyone to be thankful for the lives they have; the comfort and freedom they enjoy in our country. To remember those who chose a higher calling; to serve a greater purpose. If the Lord had dealt you a different hand in life, you could have very well been on this roster. Believe that for every American that does not join; does not serve; someone else takes their place. That someone could be a total stranger, or a neighbor, or a loved one. But know this...that it was someones brother, sister, son or daughter; someones mother or their father, a wife, a husband. Remember it could have been you the next time you feel sorry for yourself; and be thankful. Know there are scars on the inside that do not show, and are just as disabling as the wounds of the flesh. Never pass by the chance to thank those who gave in your place, and realize the pain they carry on the inside may be unknown to you. Never forget those who suffered so you did not have too, and that they leave their memories here at home in the hearts of those who knew them and loved them, and that they are not simply faces and names on a list. they are you, and I.

"From this day to the ending of the world, But we in it shall be remembered- We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition; And gentlemen in England now-a-bed Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here, And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."
William Shakespeare, St. Crispen's Day Speech HENRY V C. 1599

The Fallen Of The 4th Battalion 31st Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade, 10th Mountain Division....My Brothers. When life seems to stressful, you feel lost inside, and are caught up with the troubles of life in America, stop, breath....and remember those who no longer feel the struggles that are a part of everyday life, and their families and the fellow brothers and sisters in uniform, and say a prayer of hope. "Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed, because the Lord holds his hand." PSALM 37:24 ..

A Cowboy Is....

A cowboy is the way he is because he works with stock.
He’s learned it’s best to ease along,
To find the rhyme in their song,
And not to fret if days are long,
Because cows don’t punch a clock.

That separates him from the crowd that keeps a job in town.
That stacks the boxes all in rows,
Or bolts the knobs on radios,
But when the whistle blows,
They lay the hammers down.

A job ain’t done until it’s done-that’s life down on the ranch..
To gather those who tend to stray,
To treat the sick on Christmas Day,
And if she needs your help, to stay,
Until she’s safe from harm.

You see, you just cant quit a cow, sometimes you’re all she’s got.
No reinforcements in the hall,
No 911 to hear her call,
Just you, and nobody else, that’s all,
To get her trough the spot.

His calling is as old as time. It is, will be, and was.
Through blizzards, bogs, and barbed wire fence,
He stands against the pestilence,
And though he feigns indifference,
He’s proud of what he does.

It’s done without a second thought by those who tend the stock.
“It’s what I do,” you’ll heat them say,
With no demand for higher pay,
And I believe they are that way,
Because they work with stock.
