Memorial's day



Happy memorials day to every one. I want to thank all the veterans and all of the men and women that serve the nation. And for that I leave this poem from poets.org.

Three Mathew Brady Photographs
By, Eric Pankey

1. Confederate Dead behind a Stone Wall at Fredericksburg, Virginia
Where the glass negative broke:
A silky, liquid black,
Like spilled scrivener’s ink,
Pools in the print’s margin.
                        : :
Mouth gone slack, eyes upward,
            Face glazed with blood, the man—
Lifeless, slumped, and tangled
            In a tarp—looks for God.
                        : :
Two leafless trees hold up
            A scratched sky’s leaden weight.
Autumn? Winter? No wind
            To sway the upright trees.
                        : :
Such a long exposure
To affix the fallen,
(Staged or happened upon,)
Abandoned to this ditch.

2. Wilderness, near Chancellorsville, Virginia
It is a slow process:
                               fallen and standing trees,
Propped, bent, a clutter of intersections—
All moss- and lichen-ridden,
                                             woodpecker pecked,
Bored by grubs, antler-scraped, bark rubbed free—
Hard to tell from the decay
                                           the living from the dead,
The dead from the almost dead—
A tree—
               horizontal across the creek,
Uprooted when a flash flood cut the cut-bank—
Still leaves, blossoms, bears fruit.
                                                    Without a buttress,
A long dead sycamore remains upright.

3. Burying the Confederate Dead at Fredericksburg, Virginia
Jesus said, Let the dead bury the dead.
Two caskets and five or six canvas-
Covered bodies wait beside a trench
Three black men have spent all day digging.
Given their druthers, they’d obey scripture.

what age do you have the birds and bees talk

Today is a day where we are going to get straight into it. When is a good age to have the birds and bees talk?

I ask this question only because I keep having these almost close talks with my son about the birds and bees. my son is only in the second grade and has come home asking me what is sex, and saying kids are doing subjective dances at school and he sees it and it confuses him.
now at this age you already have the regular talk about personal body's and personal space and no one is to see their personal body unless it's your parents and doctor and your doctor can only do that because your parent is around and letting them know the slang of there private parts so they could never get tricked or anything. Now the birds and bees talk is more for preteens to teenagers because you talk about sex and everything else under the sun at this point because there of age to understand mentally and physically understand there body and puberty and everything else. while being able to un…

Do you have a 10-month-old baby?

5. Cleaning house.
