Because You Served – For Memorial Day 2017

BECAUSE  YOU  SERVED

Because you served,

America is free.

That freedom is shared by almost everybody.

 

Because you served,

People can worship where they like,

any day of the week and even at night.

 

We can carry our Bible almost anywhere we go.

We can share our religion with those we want to know.

 

All of this is possible, because you served.

 

We appreciate it with all our heart.

And tell you with our words.

So please believe me when I say,

You are loved and appreciated, each and every day.

And I thank God for you every time I pray.

 

Love In Christ,

Amanda Joy

The Police

The  Police

The police have a very important job to do.

They protect us in many ways, that goes for me and you.

Suspects are apprehended after a crime has been committed.

They stay there until and unless they are bonded out or acquitted.

At the scene of an accident the police are there,

To make sure for firemen and/or rescue squads the way is clear.

Sometimes they deliver babies, search for kidnapped people or children that are lost.

We take this all for granted and expect it, until one of their lives it cost.

But when something happens that is close to you or involves you,

Then you stop and think it all through.

March 16, 2008 was such a time,

Now they’ve changed a lot of minds.

There was a fire in the high rise,

The residents saw it with their own eyes.

Where there could have been panic and chaos with fear,

The police closed the roads and made sure all access for  firemen and

rescue was clear.

In a truly heartfelt and thankful attitude,

We residents owe you police a tremendous amount of gratitude.

The EMT’s

The  EMT’s

Emergency Medical Technician, EMT’s as they are called,

When it comes to saving your life, they can do it all.

From helping a lady having a baby, to saving someone that’s been shot,

Then help someone having an asthma attack, or someone in diabetic shock.

They rush to all kinds of accidents, to take the injured to be checked out.

This is true whether it be swimming, a vehicle, a boat, a plane, or a house.

Each day that they go to work, as they leave home,

They are placing the public’s lives before their own.

You don’t think about it until something happens close to or involving you.

Then you stop and think it all through.

March 16, 2008 was such a time.

Now they’ve changed a lot of minds.

There was a fire in the high rise,

The residents saw it with their own eyes.

Some residents had to be taken to the hospital, as well as the security guard.

The EMT’s also handed out blankets and sheets, seeing them in action, many

residents were awed.

In a truly heartfelt and thankful attitude,

We residents owe you EMT’s a tremendous amount of gratitude.

The Firemen

The Firemen

Firemen have many jobs they must do,

In  a day of protecting me and you.

They are on the scene with the EMT

When there is a medical emergency.

They are there beside it,

When vehicles have collided.

they are there, the fury to try to contain.

When a wildfire is raging with smoke and flames.

They do these things for us all the time,

And daily put their life on the line.

So many fire trucks and firemen, the likes of which you seldom see.

You’d think there would be chaos and panic, but everything was as

organized as could be.

We residents owe you firemen a tremendous amount of gratitude.

Officer Paul Schmuck April 28, 2008

OFFICER  PAUL  SCHMUCK

Officer Paul Schmuck, I’m so glad that you came there,

When my Service Dog and I got thrown out of my powerchair.

I don’t know what I would have done had you not come to my aid,

On that really, to me and my Service Dog, gosh awful day.

Thinking about me, was the last thing on my mind.

I was mainly worried about my Service Dog most of the time.

After you said you would see to the dog, then I worried about the chair,

For without that, I can’t go much of anywhere.

Once these were taken care of, then I noticed the pain,

And could not believe, bad luck had struck again.

The people at the apartment building said it was strange to see,

My Service Dog in her basket on the seat of the powerchair,

and not see me.

Then they realized I must have been in the ambulance they heard,

And wondered what the accident was and how badly was I hurt?

But you were my Hero throughout the whole thing.

If I could see you, I would give you a hug, and say Thank You again.

Thank You My Hero,

Bonnie Jean

A Hero

A  HERO

 

Brenda Cowan was a hero in every way.

She put her life on the line every day.

 

She rushed to help without hesitation.

She ignored her safety without reservation.

 

She obviously was a leader in deed.

Leading the way where there was a need.

 

Her cheerful ways helped all the while.

For you hardly ever saw her without a smile.

 

She loved God in all her ways.

And He lead her through all her days.

 

Our hearts are heavy and our eyes full of tears,

For we miss our loved one oh so dear.

 

But we really shouldn’t be so sad.

For we have fond memories to make us glad.

 

And we know only a shell in the grave will stay.

For her spirit and soul went to Heaven straight away.

 

We also know that our Father above,

Will reach down and hold us in His arms of love.

 

Brenda We Love And Miss You.

Love Always,

Your Friends

 

In loving memory of Brenda Cowan, who the Lord called home February 13, 2004.

Our Hero March 31, 2008

OUR HERO

Our apartment building has a hero,

of that there is no doubt.

In the apartment where the fire started,

he pulled the resident out.

The resident was smoking where there was oxygen,

and it could have cost her life.

He didn’t let that stop him though,

he went on and did what was right.

I’m talking about the security guard Charles,

and when he answered the “alarm” or “call”.

How he responded to it, hearing the blaring sound

and seeing the light on the wall.

Once the resident was safely out

and the firemen and rescue squads arrived,

In spite of smoke inhalation and personal injury,

he kept making sure all the others were safe and alive.

He did end up having to be taken to the hospital,

when the firemen noticed around his mouth was gray.

The doctors gave him shots of medicine, and told him

to go home and from the fire scene stay away.

Thank You Hero,

Bonnie Jean

Helping Hands

HELPING HANDS

 

H earts were touched in an evil way.

E veryone will remember that day.

L ove is sent every time we pray.

P rayer helps us get through the day.

” I nfinite Justice” is what we say.

N ever cowering or turning away.

G iving in every imaginable way.

 

H ands stretched out around the world.

A llies agree on our every word.

N othing we want is misunderstood.

D emands are made against “terror-hood”.

S tates and countries all want what’s good.

 

 

This terrible act was against all mankind.

Showing in civilization some are behind.

 

For civil people don’t do those things.

The ones that pull at all heartstrings.

 

Now helping hands are trying so hard.

Tears are streaming in every yard.

 

Not just the USA was hit that day,

But every other country in some way.

 

But through the tears helping hands go out.

Letting us know what their hearts are about.

 

And even in this horror we will grow strong.

With all of the helping hands to guide us along.

 

With My Deepest Love,

Amanda Joy

“Noble Eagle”

“NOBLE EAGLE”

 

“Noble Eagle”, sad and crying

For all those people hurt and dying.

It was such a shock that fateful day,

For the terrorist attack on the USA.

Out of nowhere came the terrorist strike

The ball of fire, the blinding light.

The first tower had been hit,

The second one was hit just like it.

Then it happened, the first tower fell.

Then the second one went.

Oh, what a “day from hell”.

Next we heard the pentagon was hit,

With fire and smoke billowing from it.

And “Noble Eagle”, you saw it all.

When the fourth plane hit with another fire ball.

Our minds were reeling from all of the news.

The things that were happening on the terrorists queues.

But there were heroes on that fourth plane.

Who fought mightily, against the terrorist reign.

They knew that shortly they would probably die.

So they tried to guide the plane safely out of the sky.

Yes, it blew up, and all that were inside of it.

But it never did reach its original target.

So we’re sad for the heroes that we lost that day.

But they surely did die in an honorable way.

 

Heroes,

You Will Never Be Forgotten,
