Memorial Day

"Heavenly Father, we bow our heads and thank You for Your love. Accept out thanks for the peace that yields this day and the shared faith that makes its continuance likely. Make us strong to do Your will, and write on our hearts these words 'Use power to help people.' For we are given power not to advance out own purposes, nor to make a great show in the world,nor a name. There is but one just use of power, and it is to serve others.Help us to remember it, Lord. Amen."
~President George Bush

Baghdad Tears

On a Iraqi street in Baghdad,
A soldier mourns as he kneels
Beside his fallen American comrade.

Tears shed for one who died,
Sacrificed to free oppressed,
For Iraqi newborn freedom.

American modern minutemen,
On foreign soil to teach,
Sacrifices for liberty.

An American in Iraq mourns,
On a dusty Baghdad street,
A little Iraqi girl...wipes away his tears.

I would especially like to thank John, Myles, Garrett, Greg, Joe, James, Joshua, and Auntie Terry for their service to our country(sorry if I forgot anybody!).


Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow to tell you about our Jewish cousin's Bar Mitzvah. For now all I'll say about it is what an extravaganza!

We're off to spend the afternoon with Erika and her family. I hope you have a great day! What are you doing?
