by Rudyard Kipling
Across a world where all men grieve,
and grieving strive the more,
The Great days range like tides and leave
our dead on every shore.
Heavy the load we undergo,
and our owns hands prepare,
If we parley with the foe
the load our sons must bear.
For agony and spoil
of nations beat to dust,
for poisoned air and tortured soil
and cold commanded lust,
and every secret woe the
shuddering waters saw,
willed and fulfilled by high and low.
Let them return the low.
That when the dooms are read,
Not high nor low shall say-
"my haughty or humble head
was saved this day."
That till the end of time,
Their remnant shall recall
their Fathers old, confederate crime
availed them not at all.
That neither schools or Priests,
Nor Kings may build again
a people with the hearts of beasts
made wise concerning men.
Whereby our dead shall sleep in honour,
and we in faith and honour Keep that Peace for which they paid.
God Bless America
I am guessing the bloggers are afraid of any reprecussions it might make
in the blogging comunity. I am not happy he was laid to rest in the Ocean,
But the 24 hours were up. He was given a better burial than the 9-11
I guess I am one of the few Bloggers to do a Post on the most important
event in 10 years, Can't understand
why my sidebar was not full of American Flags.
NO PATRIOTS HUH?
For all the beautiful Young men we have lost.
God Bless you all. Thank you for our America.
Better one man than all these Innocent lives.
I am happy that bin Laden is gone.
May he rot in Hell..
I am 74 and really afraid of what I am seeing with the people today.
They want it all and others to lay their lives on the line.
Just to lazy to wave a flag.
Have you had a star in your window?
wave your flag.
We have nothing to fear but fear it's self.
I was watching this at 1:30 Am and saw people
coming to the steps of the Capital, and Ground Zero and I wept.
Woke up to my bloggers what did I see-A BIG NOTHING??
Where are the Patriots??
What do you have to say??
Don't be a woosie speak up!
If you don't like my feelings , tell yours.
Tell it to the 9-11 single parents.
