It's hard to believe a 3rd grader is the author of this beautiful poem.
To all the men and women who put their lives at risk each day
_ We remember you.
We salute you and your family for all that you do.
_ Thank You.

Remembering ...
Red, white and blue
For those we knew
Who marched off to war.
We honor them now
And show them how
Their bravery we can't ignore.
Heroes of war,
They were so much more,
Father and brother and friend.
Flags at half mast
For those of the past
To whom our gratitude we send.
We place flowers on the graves
Of those who were brave,
We salute them far and wide.
Seeing poppies galore
While our hearts soar,
remembering proudly those who have died.

Illustration Friday _ Fortune

Today was a very heavy day between the storm that has hit many and the situation in Virginia. I just have to say that my heart goes out to the families of the victims. It is just one of those days that reminds us how our lives can make such drastic changes within a moments time. It should remind us just how fortunate our lives are. Will we ever live in a time when we can be genuine to our neighbors and really find a new found respect for life and each other. I dont know but, what I do know is that I am in the moment and I must embrace each day as if I am appreciating the very first signs of spring.
It just really amazes me how a nation unites in brother hood _ in times of tragedy.

Until next time everyone_ Be safe and enjoy your fortunes in life!
