  3. Do not stand at my grave and weep
    I am not there.
    I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow.
    I am the diamond glints on snow.
    I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
    I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
    When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
    I am the swift uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry;
    I am not there,,I did not die

  12. For our country to suffer the loss of a veteran is a sad day indeed but the loss of one from the greatest generation is a reason to pause and feel the pain in our hearts. They were the heroes of this country like none other. Not only for the sacrifices they made during WWll but also for how they made this country great after the war was over.
