Dance, dance, the night is singing!/ The stars in the sky like bells are ringing,/ like ice, like crystal, like light on the mountain--/ I am the dance and the singing fountain!/ The music falters, the night is broken--/ a word on the edge of the glade is spoken.../ A Man, the weight of long wars upon him/ gazes agape at beauty beyond him.// from The Ballade of Tinuviel

MY DADY IS MY HERO. MY DADDY IS REALLY A HERO. ALWAYS SAID HE WAS A COOK IN THE ARMY DURING WWII , BOY DID I LEARN DIFFERENT..
HE WAS A HERO IN THE WORD GO. EVEN THOUGH HE NEER NEEDED THE MEDALS TO BE MY HERO HE WAS EVEN MORE OF A HERO. 'DADDY DID YOU KNOW YOU HAD 3 BRONZE STARS"? OH YEA, SOME GUY THOUGHT I DID SOMETHING BRAVE. BUT I WAS ONLY A COOK." I EXLAINED TO HIM HE WAS A COMBAT COOK. HE KNEW THAT. WELL NOW WITH AGE AND MEMORY LOSS, WE WILL NEVER REALLY KNOW THE TRUE REASONS. BUT FOR HIS 88 YEARS THUS FAR HE HAS KEPT HIS WAR INSIDE. AND MAYBE THAT IS WHERE IT SHOULD ALWAYS REMAIN. BUT I AM ATTEMPTING TO GET ALL...

IF ONLY I KNEW. THE LORD GAVE HER TO ME I THOUGHT FOREVER, UNTIL I PASSED. I WAS WRONG. AT 39 YEARS OLD MY BABY GIR WAS GONE. HOW DEVASTATING IT WAS AND IS. MY THOUGHTS DON'T LEAVE HER MEMORY MUCH..
EVERY DAY THAT GOES BY THEY SAY IT GETS EASIER. BUT IT DON'T. THE TEARS STILL FALL LIKE THE DAY I HEARD OF HER DEATH. MY ONLY WANT IS TO HELP OTHERS WHO HAVE SUFFERED THE SAME LOSS AS I HAVE. I TRY TO BE STRONG BECAUSE I KNOW THERE ARE MANY MORE THATN JUST ME. BUT IN THE END WE ALL FIND STRENGTH IN EACH OTHERS TEARS.

WHAT DO YOU SEE IN A PHOTO?. I LOOK AT A PHOTO OF OLD AND THE MEMORIES IT HOLDS.. MEMORIES ARE MADE DAILY IN OUR LIES. SOMETIMES WE CAPTURE THEM IN PHOTOS..
SO MANY I WISHES IN MEMORIES, THAT IF ONLY I KNEW. HOW MUCH MORE LOVE I COULD HAVE MAYBE SHOWN. HOW MUCH MORE I COULD HAVE DONE. AND NOW I RELIEVE THE MEMORIES OF THE PAST TO HELP ME WITH THE FUTURE.

PICKETTING ENLISTMENT OFFICES. HOW DARE DO PEOPLE DARE PICKET IN TIME OF WAR.. PEOPLE DON'T GET IT, WE WERE ATTACKED, WE DID NOT ATTACK. WAR WAS DECLARED ON US..
WE DID NOT DECLARE WAR, THE EXTREMISTS DID. BUT THEY PICKET THE ENLISTMENT OFFICES. DO THEY NOT HAVE THE COURAGE TO JOIN THEMSELVES? WE NEED THEM TO GO ON VACATION TO IRAN, OR SYRIA. SEE IF THEY LIKE WHAT THEY SEE AND LIVE THERE WHERE THERE IS NO FREEDOM. HOW SAD I FEEL FOR THESE PEOPLE WHO THINK WAR IS JUST A GAME ON THEIR COMPUTER THAT THEY CAN TURN ON AND OFF WHEN THEY CHOSE TOO. HOW I PITY THESE SOULS AND PRAY THEYA RE NO WHERE NEAR THE NEXT ATTACK, AND THERE WILL BE ONE.

alcoholism is like cancer.. only if a person desires the help they are in need of are they successful. my daughter died at age 39 from alcoholism. she had all the help out there, but with no desire to heed the help, she died..
If only my daughter would of realized the dangers of the alcoholism, maybe, maybe she would be alive today. She would have been to her son's graduation from Army bootcamp. She would have been at her son's wedding. And she would have attended all her daughters dance competions she has been in over the past year. What could have been we will never know if only she would have.

Insight Into man's spirit. This poem is an eight-stanza examination of "The Human Soul," revealing unique observations of our greatest common strength.. This work has brought some of my closest friends and family to tears. It is one of my proudest accomplishments!.
"To shield ourselves from pain, We develop, we create, Unique uses of the brain, That encase us like a frame, But Man can allow his soul to overwhelm his sense of blame, You see, the soul is understanding, And The soul is unafraid,"
