Biography of Maurice Harris

Maurice Harris poet

I am a Logistics Manager, former USAF and USAFR Civil Engineer Officer, World traveler and all around good guy! I spent a lot of time traveling the world both before and during my Air Force active duty career!

I have lived overseas, but I am back and not going anywhere for a while!

I enjoy reading and writing my own poetry, I have a website with about 450 of my more than more 700 poems! Please let me know if you would like to read any of them and I will make sure that you have the opportunity!

I care more than most for the simpler things in life and I always show as much respect for others as I feel I am due in return!

I have 2 children of my own, Abigail and Gabriella, who I love very much!

I love both participating in and watching sports of any kind, I am very into UFC/MMA! I am a diehard New England sports fan, I have been my whole life, good, bad and ugly times included!

I was VERY briefly married once, technically...but it was a hopelessly futile attempt at nobility, I knew in my heart I could not do it, but I had to try for my daughter's sake! It lasted as long as the time it took me to end it,4 months! ! I do not regret having tried though, even though it cost me my best friend at the time! !

I am equally comfortable being the center of attention or left alone. I enjoy learning and experiencing new things and have a knack for being able to remember just about anything that I have ever seen! I have an Eidetic memory and have been compared to both Cliff Claven and Will Hunting! LOL

I am very polite, to the point that others have become uncomfortable! I use the terms: Sir, Ma'am, Thank you, Please, etc...I guess that makes some people uncomfortable! I hold doors open for strangers, let others in front of me in lines and never raise my voice in anger!

I am very intelligent and I know it, which seeems to make others very uncomfortable as well, perhaps it is a sign of their perceived inadequacies, I am not sure! Sometimes people mistake me as being condescending as a result of that! I am almost never wrong, but when I am I will be the first to let you know!

I have been called 'old fashioned' and idealistic, but I have also been called other, not so nice names! !

I have traveled extensively all over the world, so if you have a travel-related question, I may have the answer! I very much look forward to being able to continue that passion again very soon!

A little bit of history for those that may not know me, or may not have been paying enough attention:

I am a Mescalero Apache, Cherokee, Mic Mac/French-Canadian. I self loathe the French part; no, surely, I jest!

I am a voracious reader; a sesquipedalian; amateur poet; historian and appreciant of all things beauteous.

I am a world traveler, who has been to austere locales on deployment, to countries far afield; seen all the remaining Ancient Wonders of The World, as well as many other UNESCO WORLD Heritage Sites, but I have also been to many other places as well. I have learned a lot in each of these places, and have it all neatly catalogued in my eidetic memory banks; I owe a debt of gratitude to all those who have helped me along the way.

I am a sort of modern day Renaissance man in both technical and artistic endeavors.

I am a survivor of Earthly death; and, I mean that quite literally.

I am an extraordinary man, with an extraordinary ability to persevere, adapt and keep battling through, no matter what the challenge. I relish any opportunity to help someone, but require nothing in return, but a mere 'thank you'.

I am not afraid to cry.

I am a former Civil Engineer Officer in both the USAF and USAFR, where I was discharged Under Honorable Conditions, from each.

I am able to love completely, unabashedly and without apology all that which I love most ardently. My family and friends are my world, I come second. I will give you anything that you need, want, desire, like, etc., and only ask for your gratitude in return.

I value ideals, but I do not LOVE them. For example, I value, covet, and am enamored with things such as: Honor, Courage, Duty, Sacrifice, etc..; I LOVE My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ; my Country; my Beloved, friends, and family, and, THEN, I afford myself some that is left over, because I possess a plentitude of same for all who need it, including myself.

I am a Mormon, or, more correctly, a Latter Day Saint.

I am all of this, but I am merely a vessel of my Creator, Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, it is through Him that I may achieve such lofty heights and attain such lofty goals.

It has been a long, long road just to get HERE. Now, the possibilities are endless.

Anything else that you would like to know, please do not hesitate to ask!

Thank you,

-Maurice

Red, White And Blue

Red, White and Blue-these hues shall ne'er fleet,
Nor shall they who fiercely defend it, e'er retreat;
They champion Freedom, at any and all cost,
But for this precept, all hope would be lost!

Our Supreme Law, they swear to support and defend,
Against all, whether here or afar-upon this, we all depend;
Serve do they, with Honor, exhibiting Loyalty and Respect-
A lesson for all, ideas are these, which all should expect!
