Time is Running
|Another Memorial Day has come and
gone. Many of us were able to meet in D.C. Realizing that
Memorial Day is supposed to be for the purpose of honoring all of our
warriors who have given their lives in all wars, and NOT wanting to
detract from that purpose in any way, I am still compelled to
send this message.....
It was only the building of the Vietnam Memorial Wall that brought to the forefront the plight of those who were left behind. This gives the Vietnam Veteran Community, and those who actively support them, a grave responsibility.
|We must remember the POW/MIAs and
we must make it our business to see to it that the rest of the world
remembers them too.
The military code demanded of us that we do not EVER leave a fallen brother behind. The fact that our government did not hold up its end of that bargain is not an excuse for us to become like them.

|So, as this little girl recognizes the heart of a cause, please try to recognize it also and remember to honor those who still wait, along with our fallen brothers of all wars. Perhaps we can all write just one letter to the President -- only one each. Say for example today.... And try to remind him en-mass that we will never be silent until we can bring them ALL home! I know what you are thinking. "I am just one person, a nobody, no one will listen to me..." But you are so wrong!! All of us together are not just one little person. All of us together are the OWNERS of this country! The President's boss!! We hold ALL the power as a unit! Never let yourself forget that again. Perhaps he will not be able to ignore so many letters on the same subject at the same time?|

We Should all
remember that Memorial Day is ACTUALLY
on May 30th, no matter what the government does to change
things for their own convenience. So remember to make that
day a special day of remembrance and solace too. It's a private
promise from our own souls to the souls of our veterans.
It is a point of honor.
For myself, I would like to make a special place of honor
for those reported missing on May 30....

page was originally created for Memorial Day, 1998.
I was asked to keep it up, so I made a gramatical
change or two, and here it stays.
Thanks go to Karl for the POW/MIA hourglass. The graphics are my own.
