One quiet morning, the sun is rising

In a land far away

Smoke is still lingering in mid-air

A battle won

Just over the horizon

The enemy now gone

We are picking up the pieces

Removing dog tags from a young dead soldier

The ultimate sacrifice

Another hero is now gone

A mother who has lost her son

A father lost his best friend

All to defend our freedoms

Before we go on with our daily lives

It’s time for remembrance

Remember that soldier that gave all

Remember that soldier that gave some

Remember that soldier who served

Memorial Day is about paying respect

Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force or Coast Guard

Its deserving of our respect and admiration

I challenge you today

Before you start your BBQ

Take a moment to remember

A silent prayer to give strength for those left behind

Strength and wisdom for those fighting for us today

I’m for one forever grateful

I shall never forget

-W
