To The Veterans of the world
S A L U T E !
May the night arrived when the world can sleep in peace
"Lest we forget".
YUP THIS BEER IS ON ME
I second your sentiments, Snowman. I plan to attend the local parade.
They shall not grow old as we who are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.
.....why is it that something that is always so hard battled for....is so easily abused, mis-used and given away.......?
Veterans, a great forever thank-you.
~Lest we forget~
If nothing else people should remember that freedom is not free.
It's Veterans Day in the USA and we proudly salute the veterans who have served our nation with honor, dignity, pride and sacrifice. We remember--and we thank you. Our flag will forever fly and we are forever free, thanks to you and to the blessings and grace of God on our nation. May God bless each veteran whose life we celebrate today. Stand tall, veterans everywhere - we salute you!
That was soo good I can't think of anything to say! Wonderful!!
TO ALL WHO SERVE THEIR COUNTRIES
I will just leave this quote from Abe Lincoln, it is sad, true and we DO remember!!
"..In a larger sense we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men..and women..,living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract."
WE BOW OUR HEADS IN RESPECT...AND PRAY.
To all who responded:
Thanks for the heartfelt comments.
Many have served and many still serve today...under difficult circumstances as you all know we are not at peace. Many right here in my community are not with their families. I just do not have the right words at the moment...
