A Memorial Day Tribute

Memorial Day is not just an extended weekend or time of year when Lower 48-ers go on fun road trips. It’s a special day not to celebrate, but to honor, those who have lost their lives fighting for the freedom of their fellow Americans. I decided to find a Memorial Day poem and add some of my pictures to it.

“I Came To Visit You Today,” by Shauna Ruud.

While you’re reading, please remember the bravery and sacrifice of our men and women who fought and died to protect our great nation!

I came to visit you today
To place this flag next to your grave.

The sacrifices you have made
Will forever be indebted this day.

It doesn’t matter if you fought or not
‘Cause with that uniform it doesn’t matter what.

I came to visit you today

The memory of what once was you
Still lingers true for those who knew.

To just say thank you on this Memorial Day.

For those of you who have lost a grandparent, parent, sibling, cousin, aunt, uncle, or other relative or friend in a war, we thank you as well. 🙂
