Thinking of You this Memorial Day - Cards for Heroes


I made this card for Cards for Heroes http://cardsforheroes.org for Memorial Day Bloghop 2009. (Click the link to go to their website and please start at the "top of the hop" if you've landed in the middle of the hop. Thank you and enjoy!)

I want to take this time to remember all of the brave men and women who have given their lives serving our country.
I remember that we used to write a comforting letter to soldiers who were fighting in the Vietnamese war when I was a middle school student in Korea. My uncle was one of them and he got injured during the war. I saw him suffering from the injury. I didn't really know at that time but now I can tell that soldiers are heroes. I am grateful for my life and my work in America safely. Thanks to them for their service!

I am happy to participate in card making and sending cards to soldiers in the battle field through Cards for Heroes http://cardsforheroes.org/ I joined the card makers group and started making cards for Cards for Heroes since January. It has been exciting challenges when I had to make cards with the different theme each time. It gives me warm feeling when I visualize whom holds my cards in his or her hand and looks so happy. I really appreciate their enormous efforts!


A PRAYER FOR OUR NATION

- by the late Helen Steiner Rice

God bless America

and keep us safe and free--

Safe from all our enemies,

wherever they may be...

Teach us to walk humbly

and closer in Thy Ways,

Give us faith and courage

and put purpose in our days,

Make each one of us aware

that each must do his part,

For in the individual

is where peace must have its start--

For a better world to live in

where all are safe and free

Must start with faith and hope and love

deep in the heart of me.
