    “The reality of the other person lies not in what he reveals to you, but what he cannot reveal to you. Therefore, if you would understand him, listen not to what he says, but rather to what he does not say.”

    I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammable and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.

    Fallen Hero

    © By Anonymous
    I stare at the casket;
    Draped with the nation's cloth.

    I'm momentarily startled;
    As the guns go off.

    Another fallen soldier;
    Being laid to rest.

    I struggle to breathe;
    For this tightness in my chest.

    The bugler so smooth;
    As he hits every note.

    It is hard to swallow;
    Because of this lump in my throat.

    Tears fall like rain;
    As I look to the sky.

    No matter how many times I hear it;
    Taps still makes me cry.

    The bugle now silent;
    As we pray for the dead.

    I gather myself;
    As I bow down my head.

    Lord bless these heroes;
    Who have given their lives.

    Comfort their children;
    Their husbands and wives.

    Let us not forget;
    They have given their all.

    Let the bugle be silent;
    Let no more soldiers fall.

    I shall go for a theme. We are currently right in the middle of the World Premier, and general release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I. I shall do the series:

    "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."
    ~Steven Kloves (screenplay),
    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

    "It was, he thought, the difference between being dragged into the arena to face a battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held high. Some people, perhaps, would say that there was little to choose between the two ways, but Dumbledore knew - and so do I, thought Harry, with a rush of fierce pride, and so did my parents - that there was all the difference in the world."
    ~J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince


    "If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."
    ~J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    "It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it. Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, find to their own surprise that they wear it well."
    ~J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows



    This week's theme was Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling
