American Sons and Daughters

Those who sacrificed and died for every

Americans' right to live and die free.

We remember America's sons and

daughters who put their lives and homes

on hold, and their families who paid the

price for the liberty every American has

today.

We remember at the crack of dawn

as we set safely in our homes

those who's blood was shed for us

that we might have peace and freedom

to call our own.

We remember when we are safe in our

beds at night, those who fight and those

in eternal sleep….. who put their own lives

second to all others that freedom be ours

to keep.

We remember it was not us, individual

Americans who have never had to

live and sleep in a mixture of another's

[or our own] blood, tears, and pray for the

strength to live and fight another day –

who throughout American History

stood for- fought for, and gave their lives for

liberty on the killing fields of war.

Americans may forget their names and their

faces over time but Americans will never forget

what they did [and continue to do] to keep

America free….that all generations,for all times,

might taste freedom from the Liberty Tree

that has been nourished by the blood, sweat,

and tears of the American soldier.

Thank you- American Soldier-from the bottom

of this American's heart.
