Memorial Day: Remembrances

Posted by Mark on May 30, 2005

MEMORIAL DAY.

We walked among the crosses
Where our fallen soldiers lay.
And listened to the bugle
As TAPS began to play.
The Chaplin led a prayer
We stood with heads bowed low.
And I thought of fallen comrades
I had known so long ago.
They came from every city
Across this fertile land.
That we might live in freedom.
They lie here ‘neath the sand.
I felt a little guilty
My sacrifice was small.
I only lost a little time
But these men lost their all.
Now the services are over
For this Memorial Day.
To the names upon these crosses
I just want to say,
Thanks for what you’ve given
No one could ask for more.
May you rest with God in heaven
From now through evermore

France Reject the EU

Posted by Mark on May 30, 2005

Make no mistake. This is a big story. For France to reject the EU Constitution has huge ramifications globally. While it will likely spell the end for Chirac, we could end up with someone far worse at the helm of our oldest ally/enemy. Patricia over at Ancient Eyes has a great post about this development.
