Heroes don’t wear capes…
they wear dog tags!
Two thin tags of metal that many cannot bare the weight to wear.
Two mere dollars-worth tokens – more valuable than gold.
Two tiny tin-punched pieces of information which contain only a scratch of data,
on lives valiantly lived.
So much more than the eye can see
is their meaning to those who pray for the ones they hang upon,
and all those they serve.
Happy Independence Day, USA!
“Remember that we celebrate this day because it is the day when the 13 colonies separated from Great Britain and declared their independence. We remember that the “Declaration of Independence,” written by Thomas Jefferson, declares in part: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” We see that these rights come from God, not from the people themselves! So this week we must also need to pray for our country that is trying to forget the God who gave us our freedom.” Fr. Larry Richards Erie, Pa
