Last summer I was thinking about my World War II research and trips to Europe where I visited many Allied and German sites and cemeteries. After a friend shared a video of a German cemetery, it seemed a lot of soldiers had much to say. I spent many hours writing over the next few days.
A lot of stream of consciousness writing and channeled writing came out of that. This was one piece where the dead were talking.

We are the forgotten The dishonored Those who fought for our country and were then denied access.
We are the forgotten Burdens we carry are many Fear and hate consume us. We are the forgotten They spit upon our graves And dance in the moonlight for the others. We are the forgotten Rough, tired, educated masses yearning to be free. We are the forgotten Young hearts lost in time Husbands yearning for peace. We are the forgotten Our hopes for the future dashed Families torn apart Lives shattered. Remember us We fought for what we believed in We deserve to go home. Remember us We have stories to tell Lessons to impart Lives to heal. Remember us We deserve to be honored too Our lives DID matter. Remember us The world needs to hear our stories too Our souls need to heal. Remember us Help us walk into the light without burdens or anger. As we heal, so do you.
