Follow the Path Within your heart -
Within the soul that God Gave you;
Help the ones who have drifted apart
And lost their kindness that once was new;
================================
This post is dedicated to the late US Senator from South Dakota, George McGovern.

Born, July 19, 1922 in Avon, South Dakota - The son of a Wesleyan Methodist Minister, George McGovern died this past Sunday, October 21, 2012, after a lifetime of following the path of honesty, kindness, and a constant quest for peace, freedom, and the end of hunger in this world.

Senator McGovern was a war veteran. He knew (as do most veterans) that war is not what the old movies used to make it out as, and, most certainly, it is not what the "chickenhawks" (those who have never served nor fought in a war, but vigorously advocate it) seem to assert.

Senator McGovern was always a hero to me. As I returned home myself from a war, his message, spirit, and concern were so uplifting.

So, Thank you Senator McGovern! As you have strived for peace through all of your life, May you, now, Rest in Peace and may God be with you, always.

ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
