NOW IS THE TIME TO HONOR THOSE WHO DIED FOR OUR FREEDOM.
This is Memorial Day weekend, a national holiday for most people; a time for outdoor fun, recreation, picnicing and travel but in reality....Memorial Day is the time to honor our Veterans,
those who gave the ultimate sacrifice---their lives--- to keep All AMERICANS FREE.
Recently, I discovered an internet site with a surprising collection of original
poems...all written FOR AND ABOUT soldiers. What beautiful thoughts and straight-from-the-heart writings...some even written by those who proudly served in our military.
sharing several with you now....and hoping you will be inspired to share these original expressions of love..with others.
We must never take our Freedom For Granted...it is priceless.
This Soldier poem taken from The Wall USA site...
There is discipline in A Soldier you can see it when he walks,
There is honor in A Soldier you hear it when he talks.
There is courage in A Soldier you can see it in his eyes,
There is loyalty in A Soldier that he will not compromise.
There is something in A Soldier that makes him stand apart,
There is strength in A Soldier that beats
from his heart.
A Soldier isn't a title any man can be hired to do,
A Soldier is the soul
of that man buried deep inside of you.
A Soldier's job isn't finished after an 8 hour day or a 40 hour week,
A Soldier is always A Soldier even while he sleeps.
A Soldier serves his country first and his life is left behind,
A Soldier has to sacrifice what comes first in a civilian's mind.
If you are civilian - I am saying this to you.....
next time you see A Soldier remember what they do.
A Soldier is the reason our land is 'Home of the free',
A Soldier is the one that is brave protecting you and me.
If you are A Soldier - I am saying this to
Thank God for EVERY SOLDIER Thank God for what YOU do!
