September Mourn

To all who lost their precious lives on the day that changed America:

We will NEVER forget you!

We WILL avenge you!

You were killed in an act of war. In the spirit of In Flanders Fields we will not break faith with you have died, but will prevail against the foe so you may sleep in your own "Flanders Fields". Requiescant in pace, my fellow Americans; your killers won't.


"In Flanders Fields", by Lt. Col. John McCrae, Canadian Army, WWI

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We will not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Seane-Anna, I see I'm not the only one who ordered an anonymous moron in the comments section.

I think you should send yours back as a factory defect. And next time, they should let you pick their brain...they might get a working one.

Anonymous,
You post anonymously, and decry someone for not putting their picture on their blog?
Such a position will serve you well on any elementary playground in the country...good luck using it on the older kids though.

Thanks for your support, Skunky and Roadie! And yes, Skunky, I do believe that Anonymous is a factory defect, as are most liberals.

That's another great tribute to all those lost that day....the very best tribute will be the ultimate eradication of the fanatical death cult, too often mislabeled "radicalized Islam."

Apparenly anony-MOUSE didn't have a come-back for being called out for projecting what they themselves are onto someone else!

Gotcha!

Nice job Roady.
