waking up to a red white and blue sky
on this memorial day weekend
remembering those brave souls who sacrificed everything
never to see a morning sky again.
“unless we remember we cannot understand.”
-E. M. Forster
Your silent tents of green
We deck with fragrant flowers
Yours has the suffering been,
The memory shall be ours.
-henry wadsworth longfellow
(from decoration day)
He has a way with words and reminds us
that while our soldiers may have suffered and paid the ultimate price,
it is our duty to remember them.
