I heard the bells on Christmas Day
And thought how, as the day had come,
Till, ringing, singing on its way
Then from each black, accursed mouth
And in despair I bowed my head;
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
The first thing I see when I look out my window is my flag of the United States of America blowing in the breeze. Often, I will sit and gaze at the flag - great focus for thinking. These are my musings and ramblings, and, on occasion, rants... I am unapologetic in my support of our military, our country and my devotion to God. I will honor them and pay tribute to them here. Along the side bar you will find tributes to Oregon's fallen warriors.
