Let Us Not Forget

~ I do not drink but for so many Memorial Day has become something less than what it is, let’s remember those who sacrifice so we can celebrate.~

As we celebrate

Let us not forget

What we are celebrating

And why!

The sacrifices of brothers

Of sisters who were willing

To fight and to often die.

They are the heroes

The one’s who risk

Life and Limb

While so many of us

Forget the sacrifice

While drinking chilled beers

And forgetting the blood

With each drink.
