Memorial Cross

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 glint on the snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift , uplifting rush.
I am quite birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight in night.
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!
Mary Frye (1932)

      They died for a noble cause.

And while we still mourn those lost in long remembered wars and conflicts. we must remember the war on terrorism is still being fought to make the world a safer place. their friends and family mourn them, but without men and women like them the world would be an open target for fanatics to commit atrocities. 
sadly soldiers are still giving their  lives for this country. For the servicemen who have lost their lives,

      we will remember them. 

The Airborne Prayer

May the defence of the most high be above and beneath, around and within us, in our going out and our coming in, in our rising up and in our going down, all our days and all our nights, unitl the dawn when the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in his wings for the peoples of the world. Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
