honoring our fathers, our veterans our future

They stormed the beaches
on that cold gray day,
they did not know what to do
nor what to say.

They ran straight ahead into enemy fire,
friends around them shot dead,
such scenario dire.

Yet fought they did,
for the freedoms they believe,
we are thankful for those who made it,
and for those who did not, we grieve.

For without these heroes,
we could not type these words,
stand for that which matters,
have our voices heard.

About Me

My photo
greetings! i have managed to incorporate my eternal woodstock nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga...waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. sketching, watercolor painting,poetry and photography are my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance.
