 Reflections of My Heart

USA  The Wall ~ Casualties of The Iraq War 1




 A Name Upon A Wall



Upon this wall the names
Have been placed
For most who visit
There is no face



But as I place my pen
Upon each name
I pray that you know
Your death was not in vain



For it is here I feel
the beating heart of American Pride
That gave their all
Upon air land and the rising tide



For my children and their children
The ultimate sacrifice you have made
So that each night and day faced
They will have no need to be afraid



It is because of each name
We know of our American Pride
And know that each of you
Now walk by His side



Please know that all our Military
Stand the tallest of them all
none of you will ever be
Just a name upon a wall.

Casualties of Iraq
4,660

I have to admit
this is one of two hardest pages
I've ever created.
One more which will so
horridly pain my heart is
The Vietnam Memorial Page
that I am in the process
of gathering the names now
Updates will be made as
Soon as possible.
Names are tearfully and lovingly
placed alphabetically.

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
