A Letter to My Son

A Letter to My Son

(Written on Oct. 23, 2001, when my son,
Captain Chris Brown, was stationed overseas
following Sept. 11, 2001.)

Son, you have already left for parts unknown
ready to do your part
In trying to protect our freedoms
we've had from the very start.
I ask God to Bless your efforts
as hard decisions will be made
That affect each and every life
I pray they will all be weighed ...
According to the universal laws
that govern our lives each day.
May God in His Infinite Mercy
always show you the way.

Karen Langford Brown
