Learning is the only wealth tyrants cannot despoil.  Only death can dim the lamp of knowledge that is within you.  The true wealth of a nation lies not in its gold or silver but in its learning, wisdom, and in the uprightness of its sons.
    —    Kahlil Gibran
From his book:  “The Words Of The Master
[My heart goes out to those who have lost their family members in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world – and to all those (civilian and military) who’ve suffered injury serving their country and communities.  God Bless You and Keep You.  Your country and fellow veterans honor your sacrifices as you have honored us with your service.     —     kmab]
