They say success
is the sum of
the positive influence one has
on those around him
By this measure
You are great

As each life you touch
reaches out to give back
they would breathe for you
if they could
be your legs
if they could

You are broken,
yet in ways more whole
than the rest
and those around you
are healed by what you give
in this your hour of need.

The following comments are for "Heroic (part 2)"

Yes, there probably will be more.... Its kind of my thoughts as the situation unfolds with my dear officer who was wounded in the line of duty.

I prefer part 1 also.... it was more healing for me, closer to the overwhelming of emotion I was feeling--this last installment, and any that follow, are getting more into the observing side of me.

Thanks for your comments!
