Can you hear me?
I am eternity
Your pain, your losses and gains
So very temporary
Wondering, what will you choose?
Dig deep soldier
The blood, the precious blood
Was not in vain
Unless you choose to quit!
Your future is filled
Hope, future, promise and love
Hasn’t the enemy stolen enough?
Do not let him have you now…
For 43 years, Dennis and Diana Nickell shared their lives, passion, and hearts. Dennis, a Vietnam Combat Veteran who dealt daily with the aftermath of his 14 months in-country, spent his later years reaching out to Veterans, their loved ones and tried to help share why you should never give up. Sept, 12th, 2021 Dennis joined his brothers in arms in heaven, who never had the chance to have the life he fought for daily, and his wife Diana still carries on the mission of educating, enlightening, and encouraging those who have paid such a heavy price for freedom.
Dedicated to ALL, first responders, and heroes, Diana has found peace in the wealth of her family and her faith. The YouTube series Surviving Vietnam can be accessed freely at https://www.survivevietnam.com/
“Quiet Place” first appeared in Breaking Chains, written by Dennis Nickell.
