Remembering our Veterans!

Freedom is not Free
by Ashley Persyn
There is a price we pay for freedom
For it is not truly free
But rather paid for by the contributions of veterans
To buy our liberty
As their blood drains from their body and runs like a river through the grass
Over the years it’s forgotten, war is placed in our past
I don’t think we all realize the importance veterans play
as they voluntarily serve America each and every day
We should honor the veterans for they act like a shield
Protecting us from danger, keeping America healed.
So if you would take a second to commemorate
You will instantly see
We owe veterans our gratitude
For they are the reason we are free.
I am very proud to know my Father is a veteran, that my Grandfather was a veteran, and I am a veteran. I do not believe we need 6 degrees of separation to find a veteran that is somehow in our lives. PLEASE remember them today!
Peace,
KristyLee
