Subject: I found this poem at Diane Collier's military wives website (www.renc.igs.net/~tcollier/)and I thought I would post it for all to see. It is really beautiful and it says alot about what we are about.

_The Military Child
Author Unknown

I am a child of the Canadian Military
My hometown is nowhere, my friends are everywhere
I grew up with the knowledge that home is where the heart and family are
With no dependance on the dwelling-mobility is my way of life.
Some would wonder about my roots
Yet they are as deep and strong as the mighty oak
I sink them in quickly, absorbing all an area has to offer
And hopefully giving enrichment in return.
Travel has taught me to be open
Shaking hands with the universe
I find brotherhood in all people
Farewells are never easy.
Yet even in sorrow comes the strength and ability
To face tomorrow with anticipation
If when I leave one place, I feel half of my world has left
I also know that the other half is still waiting to be met.
Friendships are formed in hours and kept for decades
I will never grow up with someone, but I will mature with many
Be it inevitable that paths part
There is constant hope that we will meet again.


Phew, I wish that I knew who the author was so I could give them the
recognition.

Back from vacation....
