A little late in the day to publish but, after a great movie I was inspired.
I live alone and have people coming to my home,from a well known Medical Agency, seven days a week, to help me with some personal chores and to deal with my physical insufficiency
This past Friday, I was notified by this service agency, that today was a national holiday to Honor our Military Service men and women and no one would be able to help me Monday. May 26, Memorial Day...
I thought this was humorous and pathetic and to get me over my displeasure, I mellowed out with
good things to say to them, the first chance got......
Spent the day scrounging around for things to do, like naps, TV, crossword puzzles...and more naps.
While watching the movie,"The Story of G.I. Joe ",a phone call from my Daughter wishing me, her very best Wishes and her Love, was my inspiration at the film ending with a tribute to the fallen heroes of our Military .
The Movie, Robert Mitchum and Burgess Meredith hook up with the 18 Infantry in North Africa,
island hopping to Italy and finally to Casino. Burgess portrays the roll of Ernie Pyle, a Pulitzer Prize
War Correspondent who lived in the turmoil of the 18th Infantry and its GI's ....
He writes and finishes the Film with ...
This is our War
And we carry it from one battleground to another
Until it's over
And we win it.
I hope we can rejoice with the Victory
But Humbly....and all together we will try,
Try out of the memory of our anguish,
To assemble our broken world
Into a pattern, so fair, so firm,
That another Great War can never again be possible
And for those beneath the wooden crosses,
There is nothing we can do except.
To pause and murmur,
"Thanks Pal, Thanks"
Until Next Time, I Thank you for Your Service.
