|I agree, Jeanette. I not only go through Memorial Days thinking of those who served in the military, but also with new-found respect, as I grow older, for all those who persisted in life to help bring us what we enjoy today. I hope you will please take the time, sometime, to read my poem, Oh My Father. Thanks........Jerry|

|Amen Jeanette! I think, with a heavy heart, about our brave soldiers from all of the wars. We really need to keep the memory of their sacrifice alive, and maybe one day wars will end. I wrote a poem "Shouldn't We Tell The Children", that speaks of the need to tell our children how we came to live free.

I wish you a sad Memorial Day
That is filled with warm memories of our dead soldiers
Filled with praise for veterans and those who still serve—let us pray.
Points well made, Jeanette. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

|Yes Jeanette, Memorial Day is not a day of celebration but of remembrance. As a poet you gave your share honorably. God bless those who gave their life and those who still carry their suffering.

|This timely reminder says it all. I'd rather try to be happy and still remember them in thought and deed...M I asked my 12 yr old grandson if he knew why we celebrate Memorial Day , and He did know why. Guess they are learning something in school!....|

|A powerful reminder, Jeanette.

|AMEN Jeanette. It was never meant to be a day of celebration and partying. Sad how quickly we forget. It would be better to put Memorial Day back on May 30th like it was meant to be. Regardless of what day of the week it falls on. Our Patriotism has gone to hell as is our country. Great piece of honest work my friend. God bless.|

A wonderful tribute to our fallen heroes, and yes, it is so true, it just seems like another day off from work. Let us remember.

I sit here, with tears running down my face, in honor of those who you eloquently pay tribute to in these lines - as the daughter, sister, niece, cousin of Veterans, as well as a USAF Veteran, myself, thank YOU for honoring those who've served. Excellent.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. *tears*

|an excellent write for the day-i remember when there were memorial day parades and then a walk to put flags on the graves of fallen soldiers and all the houses flew flags--i don't see that so much any more-|
