What does PEACE mean to you?
Read Psalm 29:11



Just prior to Christmas 2000 William Heffner was asked by a Dallas Newspaper to write something honoring all public servants, William wrote "Beyond A Christmas Day" as a result. 


This year "2014" William Heffner is posting "Beyond A Christmas Day" to honor those who didn't have the opportunity to be with their loved ones due to their service to the public via sometype of organization that works 24/7, please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.



Working on a holiday
 Is not so very strange
To public servants everywhere
  And that's not going to change,

They sacrifice, so we can live
In peace through out the land
Christmas day and everyday
We need their helping hand.

So don't forget to thank the Lord
When Santa's gone away
For all the peace these servants bring
Beyond a Christmas Day.



In addition if you are a public servant, then you are the inspiration of "Beyond A Christmas Day".

Thanks and God Bless!.

Hello William:

So glad you are one of the few who articulate the heart as well as you have dear brother. This is how we all should be 365 days, not just focusing on the one turned commercial by the world, but focus on THE ONE that can change the world. May God bless and protect you and those who share your attitude of gratitude always.

Thank you for your words of encouragement.

This poem was great William, it's funny how on the holidays like Christmas people seem to commit more terrible crimes. Then again I guess it's just the way life is. The jews and arabs live on Holy land and they kill each other like crazy. G

Glad to know you are out there William protecting us! .........................
Maybe you can find a way to help promote the cause Linda Hill and I are expounding.
You might repost the article we have here. Or maybe you can spread the names of the missing children. Please read my poem on this page and do whatever you can to spread the word. If you run a repost you cna take it to work with you and find out if there is somewhere you can put these children on an 800 hot line number. Or post an article in the newspaper to further the cause ... or contact Adam Walsh to find out if the can feature the Children before it is too late. ANYTHING you think that might give them a chance. The fugitive has already killed his girl friend. These children are in grave danger. Thank you for anything
you can do. Linda Hill & Bill Murray
