Quote Of The Day

She waits,
Keeping watch
Ears straining to catch
The returning flight,
Waiting to count the returned
And the missing.

She waits
Past the dawn,
Waits for the missing.
And waits.   ~  Clare Stewart.

This is beautiful. My Nana sent four "boys" off to war, and by the Grace of God, all four returned, but I know that was not common. I've been listening to FDR and Churchill's speeches, and they still bring tears.
