Written in tribute to the Boston Marathon survivors in January of 2015.  Dedicated now to the people of Brussels.

Ignore the smoke of fear
Be not afraid

Midst the debris of hate
Do not look back

A saddened nation cheers you
A shaken world observes

Shed not tears of despair
You will not be defeated

To finish is your destiny
Freedom is your prize


About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs of questionable origin. I created this blog as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations since my wife is tired of hearing them and, after 50 some odd years, probably with good reason. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
