Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

This is America’s story. . . your story in poetic verse for inspiration toward understanding the sacrifices made in establishing and maintaining America's freedom.


This book is dedicated to those who laid the foundation and established the platform for our American freedom: those who have served in the past, presently serve, or will serve our military forces in the future.They are the epitome of the human spirit called freedom.
 
Because of my strong affinity toward our military, a portion of the proceeds from book sales will benefit the Wounded Warrior Program and/or the Veterans of Foreign Wars. This is solely a personal, heartfelt decision and is not for advertisement or endorsement of either program.

AWAKENINGS FROM THEN 'TIL NOW

Open your mind to discovery and reflection...

History is a mighty dramos, enacted upon the theatre of times, with suns for lamps and eternity for a background. —Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)

From me...

Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers
Lived and died laying a firm foundation
Blood, sweat, tears, labors, even fears
Paved the way for future innovation

 Generation upon generation
Of caregivers and caretakers
Ensure longevity of our nation
From carpenters to boot makers

  Vivid stories and recollectons
Allow us to peer into the past
Sense the emotion, discern the pain
Echoing memories to last and last

Past events dominate present-day life
Through traditions, beliefs, and religions
Surviving countless ravages of time
Regardless of conflicts and afflictions

 To you... 

Turn the pages, awaken to timeless treasures from then 'til now
Embrace the past, empower the present, enrich the future
 See yourself not as an isolated individual
But part of a thread binding life together like a suture

Begin your footsteps...



History is a guide to navigation in perilous times. History is who we are and why we are the way we are. —David C, McCullough (1933-Present)
