In Remembrance

As I prepare this post I pause to reflect on the significance of this day in our history. Most anniversaries, especially after ten years are celebrations of bliss and harmony. Today, I leave you to your own thoughts and reflections and step away from our usual post of creativity and inspiration. What I will share is a poem I have referred to many times as I sat and pondered the world in which we find ourselves:

The American Hero
by Roger Robich
The American Hero always comes through
To capture our hearts with a spirit so true
Some proudly are soldiers who march in harm’s way
Insuring our freedom, courageous they stay
While others come forth as civilians so brave
Determined in purpose, so steadfast to save
We should always keep clear a place in our heart
For each has a value beyond precious art
Their duty to country will not be surpassed
Please honor their courage, for some it’s their last
We live in a world which can be hard to bear
Thank God for these people, how greatly they care
Do ponder new heroes and what they will face
And pray for their safety no matter their place
Our heritage brings out the best, we all know
Our great book of heroes is destined to grow
