"Memorial Day"

This weekend is a holiday weekend. I want everyone to enjoy their freedom this weekend but remember why they can:    


As you stoke your fires and enjoy your drink
Make sure you take some time today to think 
Of those who sacrificed for you and your family
Those who served and gave it all for the military 
Defenders of our freedom, those bravest of souls 
Wearing courage like a badge and paying death's tolls
It's not about burgers and dogs on the grill
It's about those who died for our free will
At some point today raise your beer or tea glass
And salute those who died protecting your ass
The parents who mourn their child for our rights
The children who lost a parent fighting our fights
For those who gave everything for our security
Toast them today and let them not fade to obscurity
Remember those who had the heart and strength to serve
Bow your heads and give them the honor that they deserve.
