It's been one year now since the tragedy of Cody's death. One year since I blogged about it here and got so much support.

This is a poem dedicated to the young man who was violently killed just for stating that he wanted to become a police officer. Two others were also seriously injured, one of those being my DD's boyfriend.


There will come a day
when your tears of sorrow
will softly flow into tears of remembrance...
and your heart will begin to heal itself...
and grieving will be interrupted by episodes of joy...
and you will hear the whisper of hope.
There will come a day
when you will welcome the tears of remembrance...
as a sunshower of the soul...
a turning of the tide...
a promise of peace.
There will come a day when you will...
risk loving...
go on believing...
and treasure the tears of remembering.

    I feel the same way as all the others here. I also have to remember to hang tight and remember all the good times. Why I hold onto what is no longer, I don't know. I just don't want to let go!!
    You have such great blogs here--I should have visited more often but I will from now on!! You help me so and I am sure that others have gleaned from your blogs---even if they haven't left messages!!
    Haven't heard from you for a while here now so I am hoping you will have an entry this month, August 09, for us to read!! I will write you a SparkMail to remind you!!
    I'm becoming a better friend!! LOL
