A Memorial Day tribute I thought I would post before we all scattered to the beaches and barbecues for the weekend. Have a Safe and Happy Memorial Day!
Daring heroes, filled with might
Braved the sands and seas to fight
In honor of our right to be
A nation bound by liberty
They did not view death as their fate
And fear was an unspoken trait
Within their eyes, ‘twas one for all
Until each took their final fall.
In rich swamplands and desert heat
These soldiers spoke not of defeat
Each knew the task they held at hand
The battlefield was their command
They sacrificed their lives for peace
And prayed their vision would not cease
After their time had come and gone
For freedom should be carried on.
Daring heroes, tried and true
Proud of the red, white, and blue
Gave their lives on distant ground
For the freedom we hold renowned
Each year, we praise their selfless deed
And service in our time of need
Through prayers of thanks that we convey
When we observe Memorial Day.

|Glad you remember the real reason behind the holiday; let us do the best thing yet: thank our brave vets and those who now serve, and remember those families who lost loved ones! Thank you!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Burleson, Karen Lynn. :D
I plan on going to the Memorial day parade and think of our vets! (Lots of military might in my family: Air Force, Army, Navy, even Marines. :) )

As a Veteran, I salute you for this powerful reminder of why we have Memorial Day. It's because of the sacrifices made by our men and women in uniform. They give us the freedom to celebrate holidays; it's only right we pause and remember them. Thank you.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
