Memorial Day

Originally Titled, "JUST A COMMON SOLDIER"

by A. Lawrence Vaincourt ©1985

He was getting old and paunchy and his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion, telling stories of the past
Of a war that he had fought in and the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies; they were heroes, every one.
And tho' sometimes, to his neighbors, his tales became a joke,
All his Legion buddies listened, for they knew whereof he spoke.
But we'll hear his tales no longer for old Bill has passed away,
And the world's a little poorer, for a soldier died today.
He will not be mourned by many, just his children and his wife,
For he lived an ordinary and quite uneventful life.
Held a job and raised a family, quietly going his own way,
And the world won't note his passing, though a soldier died today.
When politicians leave this earth, their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing and proclaim that they were great.
Papers tell their whole life stories, from the time that they were young,
But the passing of a soldier goes unnoticed and unsung.
Is the greatest contribution to the welfare of our land
A guy who breaks his promises and cons his fellow man?
Or the ordinary fellow who, in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his Country and offers up his life?
A politician's stipend and the style in which he lives
Are sometimes disproportionate to the service that he gives.
While the ordinary soldier, who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal and perhaps, a pension small.
It's so easy to forget them for it was so long ago,
That the old Bills of our Country went to battle, but we know
It was not the politicians, with their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom that our Country now enjoys.
Should you find yourself in danger, with your enemies at hand,
Would you want a politician with his ever-shifting stand?
Or would you prefer a soldier, who has sworn to defend
His home, his kin and Country and would fight until the end?
He was just a common soldier and his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us we may need his like again.
For when countries are in conflict, then we find the soldier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles that the politicians start.
If we cannot do him honor while he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage at the ending of his days.
Perhaps just a simple headline in a paper that would say,
Our Country is in mourning, for a soldier died today.

Enjoy today and Thank a Veteran! They are responsible for the many freedoms we have in our great country, USA! That is why we memorialize these Heros on Memorial Day. Go to a National Cemetery and notice the headstones- most of our Warriors who gave their life were very young, notice that they also teach us about time, and timelessness!

Time is a human invention to separate this thing from that thing. When we remember that there is only One Thing, we have arrived at our true state ... timelessness.

Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life. ~ Omar Khayyam

Earth Energy Changes+ Cosmic Energy Changes

Did you notice the Earth energy change? It affected us all on May 29. I had much more energy, and it lasted into the next day! Earth changes are happening, and so are Cosmic Energy changes!
See below for NOAA picture of the solar storm and unexpected auroras on Spaceweather:

AURORA SURPRISE: On May 29th, the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) tilted south and opened a crack in Earth's magnetosphere. Solar wind poured in and fueled a G1-class geomagnetic storm. Northern Lights were sighted as far south as Wisconsin.
The storm has subsided now. The next storm is due on May 31st or June 1st when a solar wind stream is expected to hit Earth's magnetic field. Would you like a call when the action begins? Sign up for Spaceweather Phone.

It has now been 7 years since the car accident. They said I would not walk or ever get out of the pain. "Just get used to it and take your drugs" they said. Not one of them thought I would get better. What is just amazing, if not purely a miracle, is that I did get better, and I got better without any medication, not even a tylenol. Without any surgery, even though I was recommended to get a few! Without any injections, or any other invasive treatment. Intuitively, I KNEW I would heal, that I could heal within, without outside intervention. I also had the best natural healing team on Earth! Biofeedback Jack, Massage Therapist Emilia, Acupuncture Jane, Terry Struck, MD, PT, massage beds, hot tubs, Yoga with Teryl, Tai Chi and swimming, music, stretching and sleep- precious sleep! Thank You All for helping me to get my life back! Nurturing friends and family, Thank You All for everything!

May Day

May Day, May Day! All the children are happy today! Many different celebrations are held today, the first day in May. Remember the Maypole? Singing songs, dancing around the pole and wrapping the ribbons around and around, until it is braided with beautiful colors! What fun we had! Our mothers standing by and clapping for us, dancing and laughing along with us!
This is the month of Mothers! Let your mother know you love her- before actual Mother's Day! All the mothers of our life are honored this month! Even, and especially- Mother Earth!
