  • NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

    Posted on 2/18/04 - 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.

    Jerry,
    In one of my classes at Gridley High School in Gridley Illinois, we are trying to remember all those who gave their life in service to our country. Thank you for giving your life in service to our country. You will always be looked to as an example of a true American Hero who was willing to fight for the values and beliefs of their country. We will never be able to repay you, but we will never forget the sacrifice you gave. God bless you and your loved ones.
    Sincerely,
    Kaleigh Schlipf

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.
