A Memorial Day 2018 Tribute

Written by 
Beyond just a three day holiday weekend to celebrate the beginning of summer, consider honoring, even for just a few minutes, those who have served:
A Memorial Day Tribute 
Unselfishly, you left your fathers and your mothers,
You left behind your sisters and your brothers.
Leaving your beloved children and wives,
You put on hold, your dreams-your lives. 
On foreign soil, you found yourself planted
To fight for those whose freedom you granted.
Without your sacrifice, their cause would be lost
But you carried onward, no matter the cost. 
 
Many horrors you had endured and seen.
Many faces had haunted your dreams.
You cheered as your enemies littered the ground;
You cried as your brothers fell all around. 
 
When it was over, you all came back home,
Some were left with memories to face all alone;
Some found themselves in the company of friends
As their crosses cast shadows across the land. 
 
Those who survived were forever scarred
Emotionally, physically, permanently marred.
Those who did not now sleep eternally
'Neath the ground they had given their lives to keep free. 
 
With a hand upon my heart, I feel The pride and respect; my reverence is revealed
In the tears that now stream down my upturned face
As our flag waves above you, in her glory and grace.
Freedom was the gift that you unselfishly gave
Pain and death was the price that you ultimately paid.
Every day, I give my utmost admiration
To those who had fought to defend our nation.

 And after honoring those special soldiers for a few thoughtful moments in your day, enjoy your picnic with simple planning ahead  of time. After all, when you think about it holiday eating challenges, it 's not that big of a deal, it requires, "No special tricks, gimmicks, special pills, special potions, special equipment. All it takes is desire and will." - Richard Simmons.  Think of the desire and will our veterans had to have to serve and preserve our freedom.
