The Final Inspection


The Soldier stood and faced God, Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining, Just as brightly as his brass..
'Step forward now, Soldier , How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?'
The soldier squared his shoulders and said, 'No, Lord, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who carry guns, Can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I've been violent, Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny, That wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime, When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help, Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place, Among the people here.
They never wanted me around, Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much, But if you don't, I'll understand.
There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod.
As the Soldier waited quietly, For the judgment of his God.
'Step forward now, you Soldier, You've borne your burdens well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets, You've done your time in Hell.'

It's the Soldier, not the reporter who has given us the freedom of the press. It's the Soldier, not the poet, who has given us the freedom of speech. It's the Soldier, not the politicians that ensures our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.. It's the Soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag. If you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and appreciation for the Military, pray for our men and women who have served and are currently defending our freedom for us

PRAY FOR THE FAMILIES AND FRIENDS OF THE MANY YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN THAT HAVE MADE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE AND GIVEN THERE LIVES FOR OUR GREAT COUNTRY.  


REMEMBER ALL OF OUR DEDICATED SOLDIERS SERVING IN EVERY BRANCH OF THE MILITARY WHO "STAND AT THE READY" WILLING TO GIVE THEIR LIVES WITH " NO REGRETS" FOR OUR FREEDOM.

Please remember my son in your prayers as well, Sergeant Aaron Young, currently serving in the United States Air Force.


Stay Creative!
