Remembering An American HeroPosted on 9/19/16 - by Curt Carter firstname.lastname@example.orgDear PFC Stephen Edward Crist, sirMORE
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, Sir

POEMPosted on 9/19/00 - by Wanda email@example.com
For my brother:
GOD’S LENT CHILD
I'll lend you for a little while
A child of mine, God said.
For you to love the while he lives.
It may be six or seven years
Or forty-two or three;
But will you, till I call him back,
Take care of him for me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you,
And (should his stay be brief)
You’ll have his lovely memories,
As a solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay
Since ALL from earth return,
But there are lessons taught below
I want this child to learn.
I’ve searched the whole world over
In my search for teachers true;
And from the things that crowd lifes land
I have chosen YOU.
You will give him all your love
Nor think the labor vain
Nor hate me when I come to take
This lent child back again.
I fancied that I heard them say,
DEAR LORD, THY WILL BE DONE.
For all the joys thy child will bring
The risk of grief we’ll run.
We’ll love him while we may,
And the happiness we’ve known
Forever gratefull stay.
But should thine angel call for him
Much sooner than we’ve planned
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes
And Try to Understand.
