Remembering Their All
by: Colleen Reddaway Cook
Memorial Day, a time to pay tribute for the ultimate sacrifice.
Celebrate with your picnics, beach outings and reunions,
But teach your children about the sacrifices made,
Pride in the United States and the courage of the past.
Men and women, no matter how large or small the part,
Left their all behind, footprints of war imprinted in the annals of time.
Let us give them bitter-sweet honor of a hero- respect
...and a heartrending thanks.
Remember and give thanks to all the heroes, because of their bravery we enjoy our freedoms.
Happy Memorial Day!
