Chapter 10: The stars shine brighter

I believe that the stars above in

the night sky shine brighter over
the United States of America
more than at any other place in
the world, no not because of
who our president is but the
people who live and work here,
people that are just like you
and I. So here is too all of
the men and woman postman,
who deliver all of our mail, for
now over two hundred and thirty
eight years from New York City
to down the Oregon trail, to all
the fire men and women who put
their lives on the line for us each
and every day while rushing head
first into the burning rings of fire
just like Johnny Cash would say,
to the many thousands of hero’s
who died all in freedoms name
and all of the men and woman
who serve now or in the past
bravely all around the world who
know that at any time they could
die not like those who only
play war in video games, to
those who work in fast food
flipping burgers and salting fries
whose job is just as important
as any other probably more
than they will ever realize, to all
of the doctor’s and nurse who work
many hours to heal those who
are sick regardless of who you
are or where you come from with
smiles not even a bad word coming
from their lips, to me it does
matter who sits in the oval office
to lead the stars shine brighter
here in our country because of
ordinary people who are just
like you and me.

While I was looking at the beautiful reflection of the candle light in your eyes, I could see the
shadows of our two souls dancing closely to the beating of our hearts.
