Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.
Fading light, dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.
Thanks and praise, for our days,
‘Neath the sun, ‘neath the stars, neath the sky;
As we go, this we know, God is nigh.
Sun has set, shadows come,
Time has fled, Scouts must go to their beds
Always true to the promise that they made.
While the light fades from sight,
And the stars gleaming rays softly send,
To thy hands we our souls, Lord, commend.
While the PC of my timing may be questioned, perhaps now is the best time to speak my mind. Memorial day is a day of solemn remembrance. In honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice, let us remember to never allow jingoistic fervor to taint their sacrifice and cloud our duty as Citizen Patriots. In reverence and devotion let us remember, only WE THE PEOPLE can alter or amend the Constitution. As Citizen Patriots we must assure life is sacrificed for nothing less than the defense of our Republic. And, it is our duty to defend our country from leaders who overstep or abdicate their Constitutional Oath.
I will never withdraw my highest respect, admiration, and devotion for those courageous men and women who sacrifice their being to our highest cause; freedom. As a Patriot, with the belief we must serve liberty and justice for all mankind, I must also proclaim: dying for a criminal regime is not courageous or heroic, it is a tragedy! And, to surrender one soul in an unjust cause is a wound on the Republic for which we stand – EC, Inflection Point
“The government has cost America the ethical high ground and it is up to the people of the United States to take back their country…. We’ve protected America from foreign enemies, now we address the threats from within.” – Staff Sergeant Rhys Williams
“I ask you, shouldn’t complete transparency of the government be required when we are asking our troops to write a check for the amount of “up to and including their life? The one and only time I will beg for anything is when I ask that you not let our future generations be cannon fodder for failed political policies. We give one nation three billion dollars in aid and defense, while giving her enemies fifteen billion? The humanitarian costs of war on local populaces are drastically under reported, and the troops who return are, more often than not, dealing with social and emotional reintegration issues that can persist for a lifetime. I ask your support for a Commander-in-Chief who not only understands those risks, but has taken them himself. That man is Fmr. Air Force Flight Surgeon, Dr. Ron Paul.” – Retired Staff Sergeant Rhys Williams – Transcript
