thank you to veterans everywhere
Your silent tents of green
We deck with fragrant flowers
Yours has the suffering been,
The memory shall be ours.

it is our duty to remember them.

“on memorial day, i don’t want to only remember the combatants. there were also those who came out of the trenches as writers and poets, who started preaching peace, men and women who have made this world a kinder place to live”

caring for veterans shouldn’t be a partisan issue.
it should an american one.
