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 ..

The Man In The Mirror (Repost from Myspace Blog March '09)

The man in the mirror, eyes looking back, I see, I should know his face, I know it should be me.

As a boy I knew that face, its features so defined, but as the years have passed me by, I’ve lost him over time.

I remember a boy so shy, who hurt so deep inside, who wanted love, someone to hold, to hold him as he cried.

When life was young, a world as innocent and sweet, quiet, warm, and silent, like a baby lost in sleep.

There was pain and sorrow then, like there is today, the difference then, was hope, of a better life someday.

As that boy grew to a man, that hope did drift away, the tight grip of reality took hold, for dues he had to pay.

The struggle within, was matched in turn, by the toil from outside, outside his soul, he lost his way, and that boy inside, he died.

Without that boy, inside my soul, to help me light the way, with no direction in my life, I stumbled and fell, and find myself here today.

Today becomes tomorrow, just another day, wandering, lost through life, no chance to find my way.

One day, I pray, my search will end, and I’ll find that boy again; I only hope that when I do it’s simply not to late.
