Thank You Lofty Hearts

There have always been those with lofty aspirations, And then, there are those with the more lofty hearts. The first may seek to build with donations, But the second will dig in to do their part. Lofty hearts will help their neighbors. They will be there for moral support. They will always bend to do the labor, That will cut the time of need, to short. They are careful to nurture the elderly, Then so very protective of the young. They handle emergencies so expertly, As their song so often goes unsung. But a thank you is always in order, If we would only open our eyes. For as they dissipate the disorder, They bring thankful tears to the souls who cried. Thank you for your heart Thank you for easing the pain. And Thank You for easing those cries, With the hope and love that your lofty heart contains. Dedicated to my fathers neighbors Judy and John Who were the first responders to help save him from the dark.

    aspiration vs action... no contest. We should all be thankful for the activists' actions, and commend them for their bravery. Well done Carol!! Best wishes, Keith
