Haiku My Heart: Courage


heavy are our hearts
with the sacrifice of men
who showed such courage!


The holiday
we just celebrated
was tinged
with a plaintive  air
considering the loss of
those elite firefighters
who gave their all
in battling the awful fires
in Arizona.

May Mary, the mother
of us all and Her Son
bring solace to
the families.

of the heroic firefighters,

RIP, brave Firefighters. I almost choked on my breakfast when I watched the story on CNN days ago :(

Lovely tribute to them.

thank you so much nonnie for your love, prayers and compassion.
here in Prescott, Az. this has been a devastating week to navigate. on friday after posting haiku my heart we went to the courthouse for the annual kiddie parade. nothing prepared us for the amazing honoring these children all came together to offer to our town. i redid my haiku page with photographs of the youngest of prescott offering their hearts as only children can. sunday standing outside on the road into prescott as each young man returned home was overwhelming in the enormity of loss striking so many families. it is heart warming to see our community come together in a force of love for all those torn apart by the enormity of loss. the courage and strength of the wives is humbling to say the least. yesterday while spending the day at the infusion center i learned that our local hospital is going to take care of the medical expenses for the three deliverers of the yet to be born children of the three fallen "new" dads on the hotshot crew. so kind, and so heart wrenching all at once.
