Checking my E-mail and stumbled on Circle Sancuary's military care package drive. I decided to do something for our brothers and sisters who fight and die on the front lines. Until I figure out what that is I'll say this.:
Though I may not approve of our war I support you guys. I haven't a clue what your going through, never having smelled the gunpowder, sweat, blood, and other things I won't get into. Or having felt the fear and at times excitement and exhilration of battling with your comrades by your side. To be honest, I'm terrified of what my reaction would be.
I respect you and hope to do you honor somehow. I will pray for your safe return. I will pray that the brothers and sisters whom have moved to the otherworld will find peace.
May whom ever you pray to watch over you.
Now would be the time I would put in a poem or something but I suck at poetry so here's a blessinf from Circle Sancuary:
Military Pagan Blessing
Powers of the Ancient Ways,
In this place far from my home and my family,
I honor you and call upon you.
Powers of Earth,
Strengthen my physical body and the bodies of my peers and commanders.
Powers of Air,
Keep me vigilant at my post,
My mind clear and sharp.
Powers of Fire,
Give me courage,
Even when my duty is hard or bitter.
Powers of Water,
Grant me restful slumber and good dreams after a long duty day.
Powers of Spirit,
Balance me in honor, nobility, and spiritual purpose.
Powers of Goddess & God & Their Unity,
Be with me & around me, bless me & protect me as I carry out my mission.
So Mote It Be.
