Liberty’s Alter

Each encases an American

hero who died on liberty's alter.

Tho their lips have been

silenced and their hearts shall

never again quicken at the sight

of old glory ripplin in the wind….

Their silence testifies of their

unconditional love for their country

and fellow countrymen.

One cannot help but look upon

those flag covered coffins with

sadness and with pride

When one considers the price

of freedom paid by those inside.

Long will Americans be thankful

for those champions of the

red, white,and blue who lived and

died in such away as to move a

grateful nation to tears.

Thank you American soldier

For a job well done

Because of your individual love

for justice and liberty you faced

your foe and fore filled the mission

for which you were born.

Those flag covered coffins

hold more than American

Sons and daughters-

Each encases an American

hero who died on liberty's alter.
