An oldie but a good one ....

“But we can perhaps remember, if only for a time, that those who live with us are our brothers, that they share with us the same short moment of life; that they seek, as do we, nothing but the chance to live out their lives in purpose and in happiness, winning what satisfaction and fulfillment they can.

Surely, this bond of common faith, this bond of common goal, can begin to teach us something. Surely, we can learn, at least, to look at those around us as fellow men, and surely we can begin to work a little harder to bind up the wounds among us and to become in our own hearts brothers and countrymen once again.”

Eternal rest grant upon Red Larson, oh Lord. And May your perpetual light shine upon him forever. Rest In Peace. Amen. (This photo was taken outside my office in Okeechobee a while back. Mr Larson was telling my son Seamus about his time flying in World War II).
