|A Great poem,
Apathy is a curse,
ButI see more evidence of Patriotism in your country than in mine. It is a sad thing. Jackie <> <

|Good one Cherokee. A lot of people don't realize that if wasn't for the soldier/man not afraid to pick up a gu and fight, they would be here to protest anything. G|

|It is so sad that this write reflects the truth of our society today...the thrill of being an American is gone from the hearts of too many who would much rather find the cracks and make them wider. I salute your pride and beautiful poem. My birthday, incidentally, falls on the Fourth of July and it is fitting to see this as our day of celebration approaches.

|Poetry well represented through a responsible social and human mind... Poetry meaning what it exits for with knowledge and respect for the creation of wonders... Poetry showing the picture of reality and wisdom calling to save the Ship before it crashes against the Rock of Indifference.
"Valley Forge 1776/2003" gave me dews of thoughts to refresh my thinking "On my journey to Justice for Justice Everywhere".
I Salute You Poet with Poetry, and I send You through this, the accolades of my heart.
Long Healthy Life may You enjoy, Poet, on a Blissful Living.
My gratitude and admiration.

|Ahhhh Cherokee as I live but a hop, skip and a jump away from Valley Forge and visit the historical landmarks quite frequently this poem is so much like one of their true to life plays...Excellant Work! 'Tis also indeed a inspiring tribute to remember all who gave the ultimate sacrifice for everyone's (ahem) freedom!!!!

|That is a dem fine work, Cherokee. The imagery is magnificent, and pulls the reader in to experience it.
We don't appreciate what we have enough. We guard it so little and bitch/butch so much. Thanks for the reminder. Timely one for the 4th. Much appreciated.
