Remembering those that gave the ulitmate sacrifice

Screen Shot 2014-05-25 at 8.53.34 AM On Memorial Day, we commemorate our brave who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. They did not live long enough to experience the privileges that we enjoy. Our success stands on the shoulders of their sacrifice. Let us unite and sing in praise of these unknown heroes with these Memorial Day quotes and sayings. I watched the flag pass by one day. 

It fluttered in the breeze.
A young Marine saluted it,
and then he stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud,
He’d stand out in any crowd.
I thought how many men like him
Had fallen through the years.
How many died on foreign soil?
How many mothers’ tears?
How many pilots’ planes shot down?
How many died at sea?
How many foxholes were soldiers’ graves?
No, freedom isn’t free.

I heard the sound of TAPS one night,
When everything was still
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times
That TAPS had meant “Amen,”
When a flag had draped a coffin
Of a brother or a friend.
I thought of all the children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.
I thought about a graveyard
At the bottom of the sea
Of unmarked graves in Arlington.
No, freedom isn’t free.
