MEMORIAL VOW

Image



Once was a time in America, when all children were taught,
reverent praise for our nation's war dead, respect for why they fought.

Sadly many see this holiday, as a storewide shop sale
instead of the sacrifices made, by the men's freedom tale.

The thieves of culture seek to rid past, selling freedom as free,
but who will remember bygone tears, if not for you and me?

Thankful isn't a bob nod of head, or a cookout on beach,
feeling indebted for liberty, every day, and each.

We are the keepers of legacy, that honors the glory.
When you look into children's eyes, teach them well the story.

It is not about burgers on the grill, but brave men that died climbing the hill.

It is not about great deals on store stuff, but bloody battles and heartbreak rough.

It is about appreciating, the treasure we lost while gestating,

a great nation of fountain freedom, and the steely nerve, to never, ever, be done.

Sobering thoughts, Foxy, but well stated! In a poem as well! What a prize you are!

I agree with you and would add only one thing.

"On Memorial Day, the flag should be flown at half-staff from sunrise until noon only, then raised briskly to the top of the staff until sunset, in honor of the nation’s battle heroes. No regulations existed for flying the flag at half-staff and, as a result, there were many conflicting policies — until March 1, 1954, when President Dwight Eisenhower issued a proclamation on the proper times."

I just found this today. You can bet my flag will be flown correctly on Monday for the first time in my life! (Sometimes I wonder about myself but that is another topic altogether!)

Thank you for the poem, it reminds us of what an important role we have in introducing our children to the the real history and the prices our ancestors paid for the freedoms we can experience today.
When Injustice becomes law, Rebellion becomes duty! ObamaCare & IranNukeDeal are examples of Injustice becoming law!! Traditional Americans must resist by any means necessary, fair or foul.
