Sometimes We Find Life Hard

If you are finding life hard today, this will lift you, I promise it will...  I post this periodically to remind us all of the many sacrifices made by those who serve in the United States Military the world over.  I post it also to encourage anyone struggling with problems that seem overwhelming.  I post it too so that we may never forget nor neglect the obligations that we owe to those who have served in our military, especially those who have given the most.

"Wide River To Cross"
by Levon Helm

There's a sorrow in the wind
Blowing down the road I've been
I can hear it cry while shadows steal the sun

But I cannot look back now
I've come too far to turn around
And there's still a race ahead that I must run

I'm only halfway home, I've gotta journey on
To where I'll find, find the things I have lost
I've come a long long road but still I've got some miles to go
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

I have stumbled, I have strayed
You can trace the tracks I made
All across the memories my heart recalls
But I'm still a refugee, won't you say a prayer for me?
'Cause sometimes even the strongest soldier falls

I'm only halfway home, I've gotta journey on
To where I'll find, I'll find the things I have lost
I've come a long long road but still I've got some miles to go
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross

I'm only halfway home, I've gotta journey on
To where I'll find, I'll find the things that I have lost
I've come a long long road but still I've got some miles to go
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross
I've got a wide, a wide river to cross
