READING SOMETHING GREAT IS THE ULTIMATE!

ESCAPE

Imagine yourself as the proverbial David from The Bible and finding yourself surrounded on every side by an almost endless multitude of Goliaths, all poised to ruin and destroy you with haste and extreme prejudice! Imagine yourself betrayed by loyal co-workers and friends and with no one left but one deathless individual and a handful of devoted followers who believe in truth, justice and love as always a few only do.

Now imagine finding the needed strength and courage inside you to do battle with these Goliaths, and prevailing against them as only tireless strength and courage can! Truly then, you are ready to Meet…THE OddsMaker. And meet Ted Hasson!

For his story is a true and real one, and one you will not put down once you start reading it. The words “good” and “great” fail to describe the experience. You simply need to join Ted Hasson in his epic journey and experience it yourself.

Already a three-time bestselling novel, Meet…THE OddsMaker awaits you here: http://tinyurl.com/k4m9b4p. Are you ready for the ride of your life?!

Memorial Day Grave

MEMORIAL DAY GRAVE

DARE TO SHARE EVERYWHERE!

This is dedicated to all my brothers and sisters who have worn the uniform, walked the wall, stood on hollowed ground, suffered the grief of loss, known the heat of battle, tasted defeat and victory, shared the company of comrades, broken bread with kindred souls, and donned the tags for flag and country! And especially to all those who gave “the last full measure of devotion.”

💔💔

MEMORIAL DAY GRAVE

In granite, marble and simple stone blocks
Dates and names are carved in endless number:
Cemeteries of brave devotion in rows and walks
Where the slain heroes of our nation slumber.
Oh, Maytime celebration and tradition
Evoke such remembrances and respect:
A brief tribute, a toast of recognition,
A day to honor the dead and reflect.
For flag and country these battles were fought
And these precious lives we sacrificed and gave.
With their blood, peace and liberty were wrought:

Once a year, freedom lives in a Memorial Day Grave.

Marching bands and smirking, festive parades pass by
And wreaths are strewn among frolicking picnic crowds.
Darkness exhumes these tombs of infinite earth and sky,
And patriotism decays beneath holiday shrines and shrouds!
But in some small contrite gestures of impious shame,
A lonely banner is left above each passive stone,
Until another desolate war and another forgotten name
Are added to the hallowed rows lying sullen and alone.
And though the flags fly wild, they are worn and old,
And the endless stretch of graves is covered with neglect.
Though the hours of tribute may be a thousandfold,

From life, there is no greater gratitude death can expect!

Yet here, with my own modest offering to place above
The sepulcher of one who sleeps loveless and forlorn,
I grope to ponder the essence of freedom and love
That I am sanctioned on holidays to honor and mourn!
For what is patriotism, but cemeteries of lost causes?
When none dare counts or remembers the losses?
Who in their comfortable havens of liberty and security
Can surrender these sacrosanct stones to holiday obscurity?
The flowers wilt and rage amidst the Maytime solitude
As last year’s old, tattered flag I stoop to claim and save.
The shameful dirge is silenced and darkness is renewed,

While freedom lies dead again in a Memorial Day Grave.
