And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people:
and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks:
nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
King James Bible
*I remember as a child my father talking of how brave the soldiers
from Australia and England and our other allies were.
He instilled a great love for those countries in my heart.
That love still lives there.
*Since I have been here at PoetryPoem I have met many veterans.
My admiration and affection for these brave and valiant heroes
have grown each time I hear from them.
They are warriors who know the hardship of war and serving our nation.
I stand and salute each one of you.
A few that I will mention here are:
Edwin J. Smith (The Old Cowboy Poet)
Bernie (solidgold247) a new friend
George Platt, (wordrider1) another new friend
and of course my late silver haired honey Thomas Collier a Navy Man
These are just a few of our veterans that we have here on PoetryPoem.
There are many more.
God bless each of you
