I Walked a Mile
I walked a mile with Pleasure;
She chatted all the way;
But left me none the wiser
For all she had to say.
I walked a mile with Sorrow,
And ne'er a word said she;
But, oh! The things I learned from her,
When Sorrow walked with me.
— Robert Browning Hamilton
the unbelievable scene before
their eyes of American and
British planes. They waved with
anything they had, even with
sheets. People were everywhere—
leaning out of windows, on
balconies of windmills, and in
the street hailing the incoming
planes. Airmen reported that it
was an incredible scene.
The Americans could not hear
them above the noise of the B-17
engines, but what they could see
stirred their hearts—thousands
of starving people lined up,
weeping and waving. With white
sheets they spelled out “Thanks,
Yanks.” Along all the drop zones
it was the same. They spelled
out “Thank You” with Holland’s
6 The Americans could see
the grateful, hungry people
waiting for the life-saving food.
Little children darted between
occupying German soldiers to
gather food parcels. That day the
men, women, and children vowed
never to forget the Americans.
When my car was repaired, I
discovered that the man had paid
my bill before he left.
He told me, “We were determined
that we would never forget
the Americans.” We left the
dealership that day with his
words embedded in our hearts.
We too…will never forget
...a stranger who
made our day!
I assure you that Dr. Ray’s book will lead to a
better understanding of the subject of death
and will give an assured peace to sincere but
troubled hearts. Read thoughtfully and then
share with others the message of Christ who
said, “I am the resurrection, and the life."
