Memorial Day


I just wanted to wish everyone a Safe Memorial Day and to say thank you to the families of the soldiers who gave their lives protecting and serving our country and freedom. I want to thank the soldiers who are serving and protecting us now.

MEMORIAL DAY
A time for picnics, time off work -
Vacations and the "Indy" -
A holiday, too often times
We forget what, it should be.

A time to pay respect to those
Who rallied to the battle cry -
Who gave their lives for liberty -
Those freedoms for you and I.


Such a waste of brave young souls -
Some still struggling through their youth
Who faced and fell willingly
Before wartimes' awful truth.


So as we share this holiday
With our friends or family -
Take a moment to give thanks to
Those who died so we'd stay free.


Let us strive for world peace -
For the end of greed and hate -
For next time, after "the war"
It just may be too damned late.


For Further Reading,
holiday
