A SALUTE




Though this is the end of the month, and July 4th has past, the sentiment of the month still drapes us Americans like a splash of red, white and blue.  Therefore, we with to give a nod to this very special day that has passed.  July 4, the day birth of our nation, a defining moment in our history that should never be taken for granted.  We salute all the men from the founding fathers and earliest patriots to those who still fight for our freedom. 

A SALUTE

Five brave men stood upon a hill
Stu, Max, Claude, Sam and Bill
Proud to have claimed its summit
Won by good skill, wit and grit
Shoulder-to-shoulder standing as friend
Happy the war had came to an end
Stu knelt to cry and remember the years
Filled with hurts, loses and deep fears
Max want only to get back to his love
To see his Ma, Pa and that sweet dove
Claude knew that he and Sally, his wife
Would now be able to live their life
Sam felt deep pain having lost his sight
But that mattered not for they won the fight
Bill declared victory hand held high
He missed his child's birth, and wanted to cry
The muse of liberty hung above then all
Brothers at arms causing tyranny to fall
There are no adequate words to explain
The lost, the torment, the ugly or pain
War is not hell but hell times hell plus two
Liberty was given to me, her, and yes you.


“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and success of liberty.”  JFK

“Freedom is never given, it is won.” unknown

“The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered... deeply, ...finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.”  George Washington
