Thanks for posting the poem. Mrs. Norwood has a lovely way with words.
She really does. After I read it last night I broke out in tears b/c 1. I know Byron and his brother is my age and I have known him for awhile 2. I just found out my cousin( my parents are his legal gardians so he is pretty much an older brother to me) is going, most likely, to Iraq for his first year out of bootcamp. I am so proud of him and am going to his Marine graduation in April.
