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.

Honor the True Meaning of Memorial Day!

'Happy' routinely appears preceding the words Memorial Day. There is absolutely no way around it. We are happy to live in America. We happily enjoy all the freedoms America has to offer. Joyous are we getting prepared for time with family and friends: walking the beach, swimming, picnicking, bar-be-queuingfood, fun, fellowship!


Such happiness has come at an immense sacrifice. If you proudly fly the American flag at your home, be sure it is flown half mast tomorrow from sunrise 'til midday. If you have a family member or loved one who died as a result of serving our country, place a flag at the grave site. Wherever you go, whatever you do on Memorial Day, proudly carry and/or wave the American flag remembering those that are no longer with us, that is, among the land of the livingtheir spirit will always be with us in our hearts!

While this may be a time for beach blasts, barbeque cookoutshot dogs with all the trimmings, hamburgers and fries, and scrumptious apple pie, it is more importantly a time of remembering. . .

The Fallen Soldiers

 

Like the bald eagle
Forever Watchful were we
Guiding, protecting
The land of the free
Tiny_StarTiny_StarTiny_Star
'Twas our place
To be brave, stay strong
Ready and willing
All the day long
Tiny_StarTiny_StarTiny_Star
Our eyes were keen
Often focused on pain
The fields were bloody
Amid storms and rain
Tiny_StarTiny_StarTiny_Star
Bodies of comrades
Strewn there and about
Never for a moment
Left room for any doubt
Tiny_StarTiny_StarTiny_Star
On home or foreign shores
Know ardently that we
Who gave up our lives
'Twas for country and thee
