Things To See At Arlington National Cemetery
They shall grow not old
As we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them . .
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun,
And in the morning,
We will remember them!– Lawrence Binyon
Great harm has been done to us.
We have suffered great loss.
And in our grief and anger we have found
our mission and our moment.”– President George W. Bush, September 2001
I pray that our Heavenly Father
may assuage the anguish of your bereavement,
and leave you only the cherished memory of the
loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours,
to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of Freedom.– Abraham Lincoln, November 1864
“War drew us from our homeland
In the sunlit springtime of our youth.
Those who did not come back alive remain
in perpetual springtime — forever young —
And a part of them is with us always.”– Author Unknown
I have fought a good fight
I have finished my course
I have kept the faith.
— Timothy 2:4:7
Even in our sleep, pain which cannot forget
falls drop by drop upon the heart,
until, in our own despair, against our will,
comes wisdom through the awful grace of God.Aeschylus.

Kennedy which Includes This Poem.
When he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night,
And pay no worship to the garish sun.
— Scene 2, Romeo and Juliet William Shakespeare
Turn Again To Life
If I should die and leave you here awhile,
Be not like others, sore and undone,
Who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep.
For my sake – turn again to life and smile
Nerving thy heart and trembling hand to do
Something to comfort other hearts than thine.
Complete those dear unfinished tasks of mine
And I, perchance, may therein comfort you. — A. Price Hughes & Mary Lee Hall
Do not stand by my grave and weep … I am not there;
I do not sleep.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds
circling in flight.
Do not stand by my grave and cry …
I am not there. I did not die.
