With the close of a powerful Memorial Day weekend I got the message below in a email and felt that this would be a great place to share it.
It's the SOLDIER - not the reporter,
who gives you freedom of the press.
It's the SOLDIER - not the poet,
who gives you freedom of speech.
It's the SOLDIER - not the organizer,
who allows you to demonstrate.
It's the SOLDIER - who salutes the flag,
whose coffin is draped with the FLAG,
who allows the protester to
BURN THE FLAG !!!
THANK YOU TO ALL THE SOLDIERS, LIVING AND DEAD,
AND THEIR FAMILIES, FOR THEIR SACRIFICES.
