Just For Today . . . thank you . . . 11/11/11

dear Holy Friends,
I know I haven't been as faithful with my poetry this year as usual. I apologize. I hope to do better in the days to come. Here is my poem in honor of Veteran's Day.
In His Grip, Chandra Lynn Smith
I can sit here and write
because they gave their lives.
I can complain and whine
because they gave their time.
I can walk free and strong
because their lives weren't long.
I can sleep tonight
because they won the fight.
I can say thank you
as we all should do.
Their service is for me
the reason I live free.
Chandra Lynn Smith, 11/10/11
