Remembrance and Veterans Day, 2012

In memory of, and to honor, those who fought for the future of us all….

The Cenotaph is a reproduction of the RL monument found in London, originally dedicated to the dead of World War I.

Lord, bid war’s trumpet cease;
Fold the whole earth in peace.
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

=====

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint of snow

I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn rain

When you awaken in the mornings hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I DID NOT DIE
