For our heroes ... I thank you.

To show gratitude for valor, and for your service in the fight for liberty, I thank you. To keep in mind that there is no such thing as an unwounded solider, for your sacrifices, I thank you. For the grand contradiction of being the embodiment of courage in the fight for other's prosperous life, while at the same time readying yourself to die, I thank you. For holding nightmares in your brave hearts, to come home and gently, lovingly, hold your own child's hand, I thank you. On this Veteran's day, and every other day of the year … I thank you.

Nice blog! It's always a pleasure to meet like-minded people! Hope you'll appreciate a suggestion of mine? Do you use sites like zazzle.com, cafepress. com, fiverr? They could be a good way to promote your works and to help "remove" stupidity in the streets like headlines on t-shirts, fridge-magnets, cups, etc: My Boyfriend kisses Better Than Yours, FBI - female body inspector, etc. Not everything we see and think of should be about sex, right? It would be much better if there were more nice pictures of mythical creatures, good thoughts, poems from fantasy genre, etc? I'm allanbard there, I use some of my illustrations, thoughts, poems from my books (like: One can fight money only with money, Even in the hottest fire there's a bit of water, Money are amongst the last things that make people rich, etc). Best wishes! Keep the good work going! Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in your ears! (a greeting of the water dragons'hunters - my Tale Of The Rock Pieces)..
