If I should die...remembrances for CAPT. George Parker McKNIGHT, USAF...who died for our country!!!!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

Do not stand at my grave and weep

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 sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn 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.

Mary Frye – 1932

This bracelet that I wear...

As a former Marine, and a member of The Veteran's Peace Alliance, protesting the war, I wore George McKnight's MIA
bracelet every day, for too long, praying that they would all come safely home.

For 35 long years now, on the anniversary date of his disappearence, Dec. 11th, 1965, on Veteran's Day and Memorial Day, I have worn this bracelet that I'm wearing now.

"...and we are quite simply now, just slightly less than what we were, or might have been, last yesterday."

God speed, George McKnight.

Memorial Day 2000
