A Poem That is Different

Yesterday was the 64 th anniversary of Pearl Harbor. I thought about what happened that day "that will live in infamy" as stated by FDR and also the "we have awakened a sleeping giant" as spoken by Yamamoto. The men who answered their country's call were a special group and deservedly are called "The Greatest Generation".

The men and women who serve in todays military are a special group also. And as I read A Different Christmas Poem at Blackfive's it made me so grateful that we have men and women who sacrifice so much to stand guard over us. Please go and read it.

It's a beautiful poem and illustrates so wonderfully the men and women who watch over us so we may sleep in peace.
