  • NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

    Posted on 9/7/04 - by Chris Spencer cws71354@bellsouth.net
    It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters. 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 rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die

    On behalf of my history class at Gridley High School, and as part of the Gridley High School posting project, I would like to extend to you thanks, thanks for the sacrifice that you made for this country. It says in the Bible that there is no greater love than this that a man gives up his life for his friends. I do not know if you shared my faith, but years ago, you demonstrated that love for this country and its citizens. For this, I thank you.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
