Living Legends

Posted: May 27, 2013 in Holiday Poetry, Poetry

It’s Memorial Day, and I choose to remember and honor those brave enough to answer a call to duty and to follow their convictions and countrymen to danger and even death. First responders and military personnel, veterans and the families of these men and women, thank you for your services and your sacrifices. You are heroes that continue to inspire us.

Honor is earned
Respect is given
Uniforms are worn
By men and women
Who hold convictions
And are duty driven
To protect our freedoms
Our homes, and our children
God bless and keep them
Wherever You lead them
And be with those grieving
The loss of a hero or heroine
Today we are thanking
All in uniform for service given.
We wouldn’t be freed men
If it weren’t for veterans, living legends.
