What would you do?....you make the choice. Don't look for a punch line, there isn't one. Read it anyway. My question is: Would you have made the same choice?
At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves children with learning disabilities, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offered a question:
'When not interfered with by outside…

Have you ever experienced the felling that when apart from a loved one..you felt in your heart they were with you as if they really were there.
here's a Robert W Service poem about that.
I know a garden where the lilies gleam,
And one who lingers in the sunshine there;
She is than white-stoled lily far more fair,
And oh, her eyes are heaven-lit with dream!
I know a garret, cold and dark and drear,
And one who toils and toils with…

Nite now and the dreams come slowly surely,
it's a time when I can go back and change things
from the way they were, to the way I want them to be
like when Susan stayed around and Frisko was ours..we danced then..and her cancer never came.
Times when Jimmy and I never went on that last patrol
and both of us came home.
Times when Home was a friendly place and my step father
didn't laugh when I
asked with tears in my eyes…Continue

I probably will never see El Monte on a
or El Segundo washed by winter rain.
I never knew these towns existed-if they do,
outside of the obituary page that states
how many boys came home today in boxes
made of steel.
I'm well aware that some have died
from Chicago too
but it's the El Nowhere towns
I think about this morning
and the young men the whole town knew.
Today some children running down the hill
