I have a new found fixation
on the Vietnam Memorial Wall
after my recent visit to one of the traveling walls

The next few paragraphs express my feelings about it
I found these words in a memory left on a page
on the Vietnam Memorial Wall web site

REFLECTIONS FROM THE MOVING WALL".
I am a monument to a black period in this country's history.
I am the Vietnam Wall composed of two angled granite edifices
inscribed with the names of fifty eight thousand,one hundred thirty four
American men and women
who died in the hell that was Vietnam

Many people come to see me.
Strangely they come mostly in silence-
old people, young people, children, mothers, fathers, widows, and veterans
All for reasons of their own
They bring gifts, pictures, letters, flowers, poems and cigarettes
The letters speak of grief and loneliness and regret
They ask forgiveness
They are an outpouring of pain
The people softly touch names on my face
They water my grass with tears
Then they leave in silence and I hope in peace
For I am more than stone walls
I am a thank you from a nation that forgot
I am a long past due apology
I am healing for wounds too long left untended
I am a tribute paid to fallen warriors
I AM THE VIETNAM WALL.

America forgets her wars
will she remember her warriors ?
You may be gone, BUT YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN

Now the lyrics to "Mansions Of The Lord"
Music by Nick Glennie-Smith/Words by Randall Wallace

Non Commercial - Copyright

To fallen soldiers let us sing
where no rockets fly nor bullets wing
Our broken brothers let us bring
to the mansions of the Lord

No more bleeding no more fight
No prayers pleading through the night
just divine embrace, eternal light
in the mansions of the Lord

Where no mothers cry and no children weep
We will stand and guard tho the angels sleep
All through the ages safely keep the mansions of the Lord

Go back to your your previous section

The song heard next was also heard in the Movie "We Were Soldiers"

The songs title is "Sgt MacKenzie"
excerpt heard from "Sgt. MacKenzie"
lyrics by Joseph Kilna MacKenzie Sony Records --
Here are the words to that song

From the Original Scottish Version


Lay me doon in the caul caul groon 
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun 
Lay me doon in the caul caul groon 
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun 

When they come a wull staun ma groon 
Staun ma groon al nae be afraid 

Thoughts awe hame tak awa ma fear 
Sweat an bluid hide ma veil awe tears 

Ains a year say a prayer faur me 
Close yir een an remember me 

Nair mair shall a see the sun 
For a fell tae a Germans gun 

Lay me doon in the caul caul groon 
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun 

Lay me doon in the caul caul groon 
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun 

Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun 


English Translation 
Lay me down in the cold cold ground 
Where before many more have gone 
Lay me down in the cold cold ground 
Where before many more have gone 

When they come I will stand my ground 
Stand my ground I’ll not be afraid 

Thoughts of home take away my fear 
Sweat and blood hide my veil of tears 

Once a year say a prayer for me 
Close your eyes and remember me 

Never more shall I see the sun 
For I fell to a Germans gun 

Lay me down in the cold cold ground 
Where before many more have gone 
Lay me down in the cold cold ground 
Where before many more have gone 

Where before many more have gone 

In memory of Sgt. Charles Stuart MacKenzie 
Seaforth Highlanders 
Who along with many others gave up his life 
So that we can live free 
We will remember them

Joseph MacKenzie, with his song, “Sgt. MacKenzie.”
wrote the lament after the death of his wife, Christine,
and in memory of his great-grandfather, Charles Stuart MacKenzie.
Charles was a sergeant in the Seaforth Highlanders,
who along with hundreds of his brothers-in-arms
from the Elgin-Rothes area in Moray, Scotland
went to fight in the Great War.

Sergeant Charles Stuart MacKenzie was killed on the battelfield,
at the young age of 35, while defending one of his badly injured fellow soldiers
in the hand-to-hand fighting of the trenches.

Here is a short Video I put together to remember My Friends
Bill Papa
Greg Fischer
Terry Kilbane
who died for all of us
I weep as I type this listening to
the the "Mansions of the Lord" music which you are hearing right now
and and am not ashamed to admit it

REFLECTIONS on THE MOVING WALL".
I am a monument to a black period in this country's history.
I am the Vietnam Wall
composed of two angled granite walls
inscribed with the names of fifty eight thousand,one hundred thirty four American men and women
who died in the hell (that was Vietnam)

Many people come to see me.
Strangely they come mostly in silence-
old people, young people, children, mothers, fathers, widows, ,and veterans
All for reasons of their own
They bring gifts, pictures, letters, flowers, poems and cigarettes
The letters speak of grief and loneliness and regret
They ask forgiveness
They are an out pouring of pain
The people softly touch names on my face
They water my grass with tears
Then they leave in silence and I hope in peace
For I am more than stone walls
I am a thank you from a nation that forgot
I am a long past due apology
I am healing for wounds too long left untended
