Memorial Day

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die. ~ Mary Elizabeth Frye

Visit a memorial and pay your respects for those who gave the ultimate sacrifice this holiday. Don’t cry, but be proud and thankful. It’s hard to hold back tears, but remembering where, what we are, what we have because they gave the ultimate sacrifice. Remember the honor and bravery of each soul. Take your kid and teach them, tell them a story. Remember a friend or family member. Cry if you must, it’s not about those serving now but those who gave all.

Prince, It’s raining Purple Rain

  “All seven and we’ll watch them fall

They stand in the way of love

And we will smoke them all

With an intellect and a savior-faire

No one in the whole universe

Will ever compare


I am yours now and you are mine

And together we’ll love through all

Space and time, so don’t cry

One day all seven will die


All seven and we’ll watch them fall

They stand in the way of love

And we will smoke them all

With an intellect and a savoir-faire

No one in the whole universe

Will ever compare


I am yours now and you are mine

And together we’ll love through all

Space and time, so don’t cry

One day all seven will die


And I saw an angel come down unto me

In her hand she holds the very key

Words of compassion, words of peace

And in the distance an army’s marching feet (one, two, three, four, one, two, three, four)

But behold, we will watch them fall
And we lay down on the sand of the sea

And before us animosity will stand and decree

That we speak not of love only blasphemy

And in the distance, six others will curse me

But that’s alright (that’s alright)

For I will watch them fall (one, two, three, four, five, six, seven)


All seven and we’ll watch them fall

They stand in the way of love

And we will smoke them all

With an intellect and a savoir-faire

No one in the whole universe

Will ever compare


I am yours now and you are mine

And together we’ll love through all

Space and time, so don’t cry

One day all seven will die


And we will see a plague and a river of blood

And every evil soul will surely die in spite of

And seven tears, but do not fear

Four in the distance, twelve souls from now

You and me will still be here we will still be here
There will be a new city with streets of gold

The young so educated they never grow old

And a, there will be no death four with every breath

A voice of many colors sings a song

That’s so bold

Sing it while we watch them fall


All seven and we’ll watch them fall

They stand in the way of love

And we will smoke them all

With an intellect and a savoir-faire

No one in the whole universe

Will ever compare
I am yours now and you are mine

And together we’ll love through all

Space and time, so don’t cry

One day all seven will die”

7 Prince

Rest in Peace Prince
