To the men and women who have lost their lives so that we can live here in freedom and happiness and to their families who have struggled in grief and sadness: We thank you immensely. We live in the land of the free because of the many incredibly brave and we cannot thank you enough for your courageous service.
“There is a day we stop and remember,
The men who fought with bravery.
Those who shed their blood and lost their lives,
So our country could live in liberty.
There is a day we stop and remember
The colors that we love.
The red, white and blue of freedom,
That fit our country like a glove.
White for purity of purpose,
Red for valor during battle,
Blue for justice paid to those who threaten us,
Are the gifts our Lord blessed upon our men.
There is a day we stop and remember,
That our men have not died in vain.
For after every battle is won,
Our country’s standards reign.
Wave a flag,
Place a flower upon a grave,
Say a prayer of thanks on Memorial Day.
For the price of freedom was freely paid.”
