Brother and Sister

This poem is my inner reflection towards the tragedy that occurred the day the World Trade Centers fell.

remembering the defenders of liberty- america's armed forces

The true value of a life..Is measured not In possessions aquired, But, in hands helped Minds taught And hearts that you've inspired. A Hero Is not measured In medals or parades, But, in quiet courage Selfless deeds And sacrifices made. In acts of kindness Great and small Which cannot be repaid. In broken hearts Made whole again. In lives that you have saved. You stand for what is right and true Giving all that you can give, To help protect our nation, And this world In which we live.( more>)

"You're Our Soldiers"

I wrote this tribute to our fallen soldiers last spring after visiting the grave of a young fallen soldier who was recently killed in combat.

The Last Mission

This poem is dedicated to the US Army Air Corps of World War II, in commemoration of Pearl Harbor Day, 2011


Can’t tell where we move to, Can’t mention the date, Can’t even remember the meals that we ate. Don’t know what our plan is, Don’t where will land, Couldn’t inform you if met by band.


Life’s Treasures! These are the things that…friends..and the simple things that God provides for us each day…(Published The Wishing Well..Treasures Edition..Eber Wein)
