A POEM I WROTE FOR THE FOURTH OF JULY-

Happy Fourth Of July!
She's a grand old flag,
She has passed the test.
She has stood strong,
Guarded by the best.

The best of the best,
Have served her well,
From the mountain of Victory
To the pit of Hell.

Our soldiers have banded
One and all.
To fight for our freedom,
When they heard the call.

 I thank you soldiers,
Each and every one,
From father, mother & brother,
To daughter and son.

You have given yourselves,
That we might be free.
A big "thank you so much"
from my family and me. 

God bless you all,
Happy Fourth Of July.
Remember our freedom
Caused someone to die.

Raise up the families
Of those that are gone,
And pray for their peace
Until they all come home.
Blessings-

What a wonderful message...and beautiful poem! I have been praying each day for our country. It breaks my heart to see those who won't show respect for our country and our flag. I know it must also break the hearts of those who have served and lived to tell about it. I want so much for all of our citizens to get along and be accepting of each other even if our beliefs are not the same. God Bless America!

This is beautiful. I know you have a Patriotic Heart my friend. Sam did his first Drill and his July Drill is coming up. He shared with me he is so glad he went this route. Going to the weekend Drills is preparing him for Basic. He knows Basic will be hard, but something you have got to do.
