Treasure Island

To Those Who Gave Their Life...

Many of us are caught up in our

own life. Perhaps we can spend a moment

in reflection of all those good men and

women who have given thier life in the

service of their country. America, the

land of plenty. We have taken

the fuits of the land. We have taken all

the riches our country has to offer. We

have acquired 'so many things' that we

need to question, do we really need all

this stuff? We take...and take...and take,

until there is little left for our country

to give.

Let us try for a moment, in each day, not take,

but give our hearts, thoughts and prayers

to those that are less fortunate and

to those who have given all they have.

Their life.

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
