I'm taking some time today to remember this amazing man, my grandfather, Henry Powell. He was a pilot in the Army Air Force in WWII and flew a P-51 Mustang to escort bombing missions in the Pacific. They say he was a ball of fire and one of his favorite past times was riding with the local Harley Davidson Club with my grandmother before he went off to war.

He earned several medals during his service including the Distinguished Flying Cross for "heroism or extraordinary achievement while participating in an aerial flight" as well as the Purple Heart. In the early days of August 1945 he was on a bombing escort out of Iwo Jima which I understand he volunteered for even though he wasn't due to fly but the needed extra men. He gave his life for his country that day when he was shot down and landed in the Pacific, unable to eject from his plane.

Less than two weeks later Japan surrendered and the war was over. Exactly one week later my grandmother gave birth to my mom. We are but one of many families who have lost loved ones that gave their life to the service of our country. My mom never met her dad, but we had the stories and pictures like this one to remember him by. My grandmother just passed away a little over a year ago and even until the end she would tell us stories about her and Henry and the adventures they'd go on as she rode on the back of his Harley.

Thank you to all our service members who have given something if not everything to protect our country and our freedom. I'll be thinking about my grandpa this and every Memorial Day and all those before and after him who allow me and my family to enjoy the life we have in this country. God bless our service men and women 🇺🇸 #memorialday

Celebrating the Lord's birth on May 25th 2017 in Nkamba, Democratic Republic of the Congo. Members of the Kimbanguist church believe Jesus Christ was born on May 25th rather than December 25th. Followers dress in green and white for the festivities as symbols of hope and purity. Music, food and prayer are central to the celebrations.

"In order to win the crown of heavenly glory, the saints were expected first to carry a heavy cross in life." -- Servant of God Father Emil Kapaun

Fr. Kapaun was a chaplain in the United States Army who served in both World War II and the Korean war.  He was taken as POW and died as a prisoner.  He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his courage and leadership in service to his country and the soldiers who fought and were imprisoned with him.

Today is Memorial Day here in the United States.  This is the day set aside to honor those who died while serving in our armed forces - such as Fr. Emil Kapaun - those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.

Ve şehrin şenliğine karşılık
Susar servileriyle mezarlık.
Susar ve hatırlar: - Bu kırık
Aynadaki hazin perişanlık
Sizindir, siz gafil, siz bihaber
İnsanlar bilseydiniz ne bekler
Bir gün açmak için bu çiçekler;
Ölülerin sükûnu çiçekler
