    INNOCENCE OF HEROES
    We see faces of innocence
    Upon our nations' youth -
    But they've the hearts of heroes
    When it comes to Liberty and Truth.

    Young men and women of the Service
    Standing straight and proud and tall -
    Ready to fight for Freedom -
    Ready to give their all.

    Those faces of innocence
    Will return, all, world-wise -
    Still looking young in body -
    But lifetimes' knowledge in their eyes.

    There are some who will come home
    To grieving families and friends -
    Just a memory to those loved ones
    Whose loss never really ends.

    Yet those faces of innocence
    And those young heroes' hearts
    Will come of age once more
    With dreams each new life imparts.

    Another generation born
    To this world of war and strife -
    Searching for the elusive answer
    To lasting peacetime in their life.
    Why must this crazy world
    Breed such pain and misery?
    When will the human race Let young innocence be?

    'Guess there will always be a madman
    Who is filled with hate and greed -
    Who will force himself on others
    And plant that killing seed.

    And there will always be
    Those young heroes who will fight -
    Who will leave their innocence behind
    For what they know is right.



    Thank all you vets for your service and for our freedom!!

    Today is Veterans Day but we should salute ourVets each and every day. I served in the United States Air Force in the 1980's. GOD truly blessed me during this period. I had the honor of serving as a vlunteer youth minister at the base wher I was stationed. Freedom is never free. We owe a great debtto those who serve and those who died serving.
    GOD BLESS AMERICA [​IMG]

    A special salute goes to the 19 men from our community who have been killed in the war against Iraq. The memorial services, it seems, go on forever.
