Freedom's Memorial by Del Abe Jones


This day is set aside
           to honor those
                    who took the chance to die.
But they have died in vain
           if we ever forget
                    the reason why.

Freedom can be like time
           slipping away
                    before we even know.

But we all have the choice
           more, a duty
                    to battle freedoms' foe.

Let us give thanks this day
           to all those brave
                    who paid the highest cost.

Not take it for granted
           and realize
                    it easily could be lost.
