THOUGHT AND POEM
Written By Jeanne Claire Probst
Just wish it did not have to be,
That people celebrate a holiday to honor those who served in the military.
But it has been so throughout man’s history,
That wars have been fought from sea to sea.
Just wish that wherever we went,
People could be decent,
Respecting and treating each other as we should,
Then peace could be obtained worldwide…oh…if only we would.
Just wish there were no guns…
Just wish there no bombs…
Just wish people did not have a need…
To hurt one another…so we could all live in peace.
Oh how I wish we could get along,
And how loving one another would keep us strong,
Then surely there would be no need…
To honor those who died while serving in the military.

The Fifteen Houses, a Novel
The Fifteen Houses is the first book of this new and exciting series to be published. Staged in the beautiful and scenic palate of East Longmeadow, Massachusetts, in the early 1950’s, the main character delves into her reoccurring and discomforting memories of her younger, formative years. Searching for answers to questions that have resurfaced in her mind over and over again during her time away from her family, she seeks to find rhyme and reasons to her insecurities, anger, phobias, fears, and life’s choices. Julianne Marguerite, one of eleven children, is determined to uncover the “mystery” that resulted in the downfall of her family. As you turn the pages in the book, each series of memories, will open a different door, to the different homes, (“Fifteen” to be exact).
