Remember them!

May 28, 2012

Eternal Vigilance 

Raise your glass on this Memorial Day for our soldiers

As you light that grill,
As you prep that meal,
As you pour that drink,
on your extra day off,
do not forget why.
Do not forget to raise a glass
for our beloved dead,
those of kith, kin and country.
Today, we as Americans,
remember those who lost their lives
in service to our country.
Raise a glass for those
that died in pain and alone
oh so far from home.
Raise a glass for those
that ensure your freedoms
no matter the personal cost.
Raise a glass and remember them.
Raise a glass and give thanks
for their ultimate sacrifice.
