This Moment


the stars provide
an endless canopy

a soft breeze 
floats 
through the fragrant grasses

cooling our fervor

your shoulder 
is my pillow 

your heartbeat 
my lullaby

we disclose our future 
to the moon 
and he shares his light with us

after 
we slumber 
wrapped in an embrace

tomorrow 
will bring the sunrise 
and with it 
a new beginning

but tonight 
we have this moment

Thank a Veteran


These men and women of yesterday and today, willingly gave up their comfortable beds, so that we may sleep safe and secure in ours tonight. They are out there in the rain and the mud or the cold or the terrible heat, to be sure that our families have the right and the freedom to enjoy this holiday.

There are men women that are doing what most of us don’t want to think about. Things that are necessary to insure your safety and mine.

So hug your family tight and say a prayer for all veterans that have done what was needed in order to defending our freedom.

Thank a vet.
