This is Memorial Day weekend. A time we set aside to honor and to show respect for those who have died and fought for our gift of freedom. We currently have large numbers of our women and men who are putting themselves in harms way to ensure we are still able to live in the land of the free.
As we are cooking out, traveling and simply enjoying a long weekend please take the time out to remember those who have given of themselves and some even paying the ultimate prize for us to live in this great country of ours. Also please remember our servicemen and women"s families. They are making great sacrifices also. Being separated for long periods of time from those they love so dearly.
I found this poem by Roger J. Robicheau and I would like to share it with you. For me it spoke volumes and I hope you will gain a lot from it also.
The American Hero always comes through
To capture our hearts with a spirit so true
Some proudly are solders who march in harm's way
Insuring our freedom, courageous they stay
While others come forth as civilians so brave
Determined in purpose so steadfast to save
We should always keep clear a place in our heart
For each has a value beyond precious art
Their duty to country will not be surpassed
Please honor their courage, for some it's their last
We live in a world which can be hard to bear
Thank God for these people, how greatly they care
Do ponder new heroes and what they will face
And pray for their safety no matter their place
Our heritage brings out the best, as we all know
Our great book of heroes is destined to grow.
Please have a fun, safe and very Blessed weekend!!!!!!!!!
