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.

Remember Our Soldiers

In preparation for Veteran's Day,
 November 11...

Remember our soldiers
At home and away
Who sacrifice daily
For the USA

'Tis not for fortune
They give of their all
But honor and courage
Answer duty's call

Patriots of merit
Put first not one's self
But concern for others
In and of itself


Of those returning home
Wounded, shell-shocked, sick
 Calls go out to others
To ease the pain quick

 Yet not quickly enough
Does the relief come
Even off battlefields
Too many succumb


Seek out a helping hand
No matter how small
Do whatever you can
Bless one, bless them all

To support our military is to support America, defend her honor, preserve her freedom.
