Today is Memorial Day, and as we all head out to the parades and barbecues with family and friends, we should also take a moment to stop and remember the reason for this day.
Happy Memorial Day
To Them We Owe
By Don Nielsen
Happened today, and in the past;
Sacrifice made, for ours to last.
Wives to widows, families torn;
Gave their lives, for them we mourn.
Gone forever, souls are lost;
Freedom comes, with this cost.
Enjoy the life, they did preserve;
Fate they suffered, did not deserve.
On this day, lest we forget;
To them we owe, our life in debt.
