Again, the memories.
Do they come and go?
Are they but an emotion to turn on and off?
Tell that to a family member!
Rather, look in the mirror and say it to yourself, because EVERY ONE OF US are affected every day!
More than just a day...
"O, say can you see..."
what you've done for such as we?
"My country, 'tis of thee..."
is what you have kept free!
"Oh Beautiful, for spacious skies..."
you served well in defense;
and now, we set one day aside
so you'll have recompense.
Again, each of us are affected by this day:
those who revere it...
those who ignore it...
those who decorate it...
those who desecrate it...all of us.
Every one of us MUST give thanks to those ago who defended America!
God bless each and every one of them. Always!
