Lest we forget… Memorial Day 2012

Remember those

who

spilled their blood

giving their lives

for our freedom.

My heart swells with pride looking upon

the beautiful country you fought for to keep us safe and free.

I  pause

when ever we remember those who sacrifice for others…

no matter what uniform they wear,

no matter in which country they reside

those in uniform put their lives on the line daily.

To all the men and women serving

and those

who have served

thank you is not enough

but

I hope it helps some.

To the families

who still brush away tears

for lost loves ones

in the service of our great nation,

thank you for your sacrifice.

If not for these brave souls

we would not enjoy the freedoms

we have today.

thank you

thank you

thank you

one and all!

Poetess, memoir writing, essays about life; these are the things I write about. I also love to cook, so you'll likely find a recipe or two in this blog. I am passionate about Nature and family, so from time to time I will share pictures-with or without poetry.
