"If he bothered to save me, why couldn't he save all the others? There were people surely worthier than I..."
-Elie Wiesel, on his survival from The Holocaust

"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”
-Joseph Campbell, on memorializing the achievements of soldiers

"We will never forget."

"Missing...but not forgotten."

"They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of water: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
-The Order for the Burial of a Child; Revelation, 7:16‒17

"Do not stand at my grave and weep...
I am not there; I do not sleep. I am 1,000 winds that blow; I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sulight on ripened grain; I am the gentle Autumn rain."
-RIP Aunt Pami, Nana, Grandpa J

In rememberance of all those who so rightly deserve it. I tried to include something for everyone, including myself. 9/11, POWs, children, The Holocaust, soldiers who are deployed, etc. I hope that on a holiday like tomorrow's we can all take a moment to think abbout what it all truely means. We wouldn't be here without any and all of these tragedies in our culture/lives. They make us who we are. I don't like to bring religion into my blog or politics for that matter, but on a special day such as this it is hard not to. This poem was originally posted for a different reason, but it feels fitting here too: Never

Smiling through the tears,
