Memorial Day 2020

but what is woven into the lives of others.

it is only putting out
the lamp because the dawn has come.

Be unselfish.
That is the first and final commandment for those who
would be useful and happy in their usefulness.

you are choking the source of development,
which is spiritual expansion through thought for others.

They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

or something other than himself.

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei

When people get caught up with that which is right
and they are willing to sacrifice for it,
there is no stopping point short of victory.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
