  3. Thank YOU very much Donna for your kind words on My style of writing is unique as I combine facts with poetry about our country America and the people who made this country great American Heroes. I recommend all ages especially our young people. They all should know about their country they live in. I figure if they can learn lyrics in a song in five minutes then they can learn America and American Heroes, education is of great value. Also posted are many other topics on our poetry corner. A pleasure to stop by and read, Thank YOU, Ron
