PostSubject: Veterans Day/Remembrance Day   Fri Nov 11, 2011 9:04 am



Just a reminder to take a little bit of time today to remember those who have served to protect our freedom. We wake up without fear of imminent danger because someone else was in danger for us. If you know a veteran, or someone currently serving, be sure to thank them!

I don't think that we have any veterans/service members on our board - but if we do, or if we have lurkers who are: Thank you for your service!

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.




My late grandfather on Dad's side served in the Polish and British Air Force in WWII.

The high school that all 3 of my boys went to is having a Veteran's Day program at 10:30 CST today. It is being streamed live. Josh has to work and Jake is in Afghanistan, so neither of them can be there in person, but they will be showing a video of past/present Alumni from Greenwood High School, and I sent in Jake and Josh's information. Can't wait to see my boys! <3

PLEDGE OF REMEMBRANCE

The Australian soldier grows not old, the flame still lights his eyes
Although his body lays to rest, his flag forever flies

On the green and gold horizon where the wattles sweep and sway
It flies amongst the gardens and the classrooms of today

Over ocean streams and backyard dreams, above the sunburnt plain
Through harvest yields, on sporting fields, in rainbows after rain

It defines a life worth living and a day that must be won
For every father’s daughter and for every mother’s son

But more than that, the honour claimed in fighting for the free
The pride of the Australian soldier burns in you and me

When the night is dark and dangerous with the rumble of the storm
His courage calls the sunrise and his spirit makes it warm

We will not forget their sacrifice – the strength of their endeavour
For the choices we are gifted with, that flame will burn forever

With a smile that lights the future shining brightly in our scope
We will stand as one, together - we will carry on with hope

But as we go, we take the words that rightfully belong
“I am young and I am worthy, I am brave and I am strong
In the face of any challenge, I will strive to rise above
I deserve this opportunity to live, to learn, to love
I can truly make a difference; my path is up to me
And this is my commitment – be the best that I can be.”


~Rupert McCall 2011
