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 sunlight 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.

Old roommate

Richard, another fellow and I were roommates at St. Christopher's. He was brilliant and had a dry sense of humor. I laugh when I think how he use to confound the dorm(cottage) bully. The bully would try to provoke Richard, but Richard would almost always have a comeback that slayed that guy. Richard was in no way athletic and would have not stood a chance against this jerk, but Richard was not intimidated. He was an extraordinary person.

From his classmates at St. Christopher’s School, Richmond, VA

An outstanding young man who graduated Phi Beta Kappa from college, Richard’s dream to become a history professor was cut short when he died less than six months after arriving in Vietnam, and less than a month after he was named “Soldier of the Month” in December 1969

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Richard Thomas Carter, sir

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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
