    Let us not forget all those who paid the ultimate price for us!
    Happy Memorial Day!
    If you have a vetran in your neighborhood, thank them, and be glad for them that they are still with us!

    Happy Memorial Day.

    This year is particularly sad as yet again many more have paid the ultimate price.

    PLEASE REMEMBER WHAT TODAY IS ABOUT---THANKS ALL



    Dry your eyes and quietly bear this pain with pride
    For heaven shall remember the silent and the brave
    And promise me they will never see, the fear within our eyes
    (my eyes are closed)
    We will give strength to those who still remain

    So bury fear, for fate draws near
    And hide the signs of pain
    With noble acts, the bravest souls
    Endure the heart's remains
    Discard regret, that in this debt
    A better world is made
    That children of a newer day might remember
    And avoid our fate

    And in the fury of this darkest hour
    We will be your light
    You've asked me for my sacrifice
    And I am Winterborn
    Without denying, a faith is come
    That I have never known
    I hear the angels call my name
    And I am Winterborn

    Hold your head up high-for there is no greater love
    Think of the faces of the people you defend
    And promise me, they will never see the tears within our eyes
    Although we are men, with mortal sins, angels never cry

    So bury fear, for fate draws near
    And hide the signs of pain
    With noble acts, the bravest souls
    Endure the heart's remains
    Discard regret, that in this debt
    A better world is made
    That children of a newer day might remember
    And avoid our fate



    And in the fury of this darkest hour
    We will be your light
    You've asked me for my sacrifice
    And I am Winterborn
    Without denying, a faith in God
    That I have never known
    I hear the angels call my name
    And I am Winterborn

    And in the fury of this darkest hour
    I will be your light
    A lifetime for this destiny
    For I am Winterborn
    And in this moment..I will not run
    It is my place to stand
    We few shall carry hope
    Within our bloodied hands


    And in our dying
    We're more alive, than we have ever been
    I've lived for these few seconds
    For I am Winter-born

    And in the fury of this darkest hour
    We will be the light
    You've asked me for my sacrifice
    And I am Winter born
    Without denying, a faith in man
    That I have never known
    I hear the angels call my name
    And I am Winterborn

    Within this moment
    I am for you, though better men have failed
    I will give my life for love
    For I am Winter-born

    And in my dying
    I'm more alive than I have ever been
    I will make this sacrifice
    For I am winterborn

    I will be attending a Memorial Service today, to honor those who have sacrificed their lives upon an altar of Duty. At that Service, we shall also memorialize the concept of a nation to which that Duty was given, for that concept is as surely gone as are the honored dead.
