Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Remembering our Soldiers at Christmas

  
Remember our soldiers
Whether here or far away
Keep them in your hearts
Throughout the night and day
Remember our soldiers
On land, in the air, or at sea
They sacrifice daily
In the name of liberty
Santa visits 2-69 AR C Co. Soldiers on Christmas Eve
Remember our soldiers
Some won't make it home
Some are in the deserts
Some are all alone
Remember our soldiers
Homeless on the streets
Feeling abandoned
Their only defeat
  
Remember our soldiers
Serving the Red, White and Blue
Honor their courage
In everything they do
  
Remember our soldiers
When one by chance you meet
Extend a hand in gratitude
For each heroic feat

Remember our soldiers
For they remember you
Caring, sharing, preparing
Before bidding adieu
  
Remember our soldiers
Amid joyousness and laughter

Remember our soldiers

At Christmas time and thereafter

While celebrating during the Christmas season
Always remember those away from home
Keep them in your hearts, cherish them in your soul
A day may come when you find yourself alone
