MEMORIAL DAY TRIBUTE
TO OUR HEROS
NOT JUST FOR MEMORIAL
DAY, BUT EVERYDAY!
Vacations and fun.
A holiday, too often times
We forget what, it should be.

A time to pay respect to those
Who rallied to the battle cry-
Who gave their lives for liberty-
Those freedoms for you and I.

Such a waste of brave young souls-
Some still struggling through their youth
Who faced and fell willingly
Before wartimes' awful truth.

So as we share this holiday
With our friends or family-
Take a moment to give thanks to
Those who died so we'd stay free.

Let us strive for world peace-
For the end of greed and hate-
For next time, after the war
It just may be too darn late!
This day is set aside to honor
those who took the chance to
die.

But they have died in vain if
we ever forget the reason
why.

Freedom can be like time
slipping away
before we even know.

But we all have the choice
more, a duty
to battle freedoms' foe.

Let us give thanks this day to
all those who paid the highest
cost.

Not take it for granted and
realize it easily could be lost.
