To those who gave so much

Published by at 3:39 pm under Uncategorized

While placing the US flag in front of the house today, I thought of all that it meant and those who sacrificed so much to defend it.   Soldiers were giving out poppies in front of the PX and my little one got a stuffed “Buddy Poppy.”  A little dog covered with red poppies, it really touched me.

We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies.

    Very nicely stated.

    Frankly, I would like to see all of our enemies cowering in terror.

    Because of the blood we have shed.

    But, maybe that is just me.
