From the sky... a flash of silver,
Than a rumble, then a roar.
And there,where once the towers stood,
T'was empty evermore.
When the dust had settled,
And the devastation bared,
The nation stood in anguish,
As they prayed some might be spared.
And all the quiet heros

They gathered across the country,
To do what needed to be done,
The voices that once echoed
Down the hall and on…Continue

I told my husband that I would be home by midnight, 'I promise!'
Well, the hours passed and the…
: After 21 years of marriage, my wife wanted me to take another woman out to dinner and a movie. She said, 'I love you, but I know this other woman loves you and would love to spend some time with you.'
* * *The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit was my mother, who has been a widow for 19 years, but the demands of my work and my three children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally.

I would rather have one little rose From the garden of a friend Than to have the choicest flowers When my stay on earth must end. I would rather have one plesant word In kindness said to me Than flattery when my heart is still And life has ceased to be. I would rather have a loving smile From friends I know are true Then tears shed round my casket When this world I've bid adieu. Bring me all your flowers today Whether pink, or white, or red; I'd rather have one blossom now…Continue

I DID NOT WRITE THIS BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS APPROPRIATE
With your heads held high you see the fire
and still you walk through the door,
When the last flames are doused and another home is spared
is it something you are always thanked for?
Another call comes in and you pull up to find
a twisted wreckage on the freeway,

yet again I wonder did a thank you come your…

A nursery school teacher was delivering a station wagon full of kids home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children fell to discussing the dog's duties. "They use him to keep crowds back," said one youngster. "No," said another, "he's just for good luck." A third child brought the argument to a close.
