Don't forget the Memorial Day Parade Saturday at 10:00 AM. Please honor all our troops, specially those who gave their lives that we may enjoy peace and freedom.

I'll be there.

The Unknown Soldier
By JENNIFER MONDAL

I peered over the hill of rock
And there I stood, in a state of shock
Bloody bodies scattered around the battlefield
From all this hatred, my mind will never be healed

My helmet was snug on tight
And I held on to my gun with all my might
I felt a wave of sweat and damp
I longed for a nice cool shower, back at the camp

There were gunshots in the distance
And shout of enemies being captured from resistance
But I was there, all alone
Dreaming of returning to my wife and kids, back at home

I wasn't meant to be a soldier, for I was a coward
I wasn't physically or mentally powered
I felt faint at the sight of anguish and blood
I was always stepped upon, right in the mud

I trembled and suddenly felt a chill crawl down my spine
I felt queasy and saw a blurry vision of my girls, one six, and the other, nine
And I reached to touch their faces
But when I grasped the illusion, they disappeared, without leaving any traces

So there I stood, hand still extended
Hoping my loneliness would soon be mended
And soon the war would come to an end
But now, this country's mistakes I must amend

But suddenly, I heard a snapping of a twig, a splashing of a puddle
Then abruptly coming back to life, I reached for my gun, all in a muddle
But I was too late
The pain, it came too quickly and so great

I looked down and felt the bloody gash
And then it all came to me in a flash
My two girls, the only reason I live
For them I would die, and give and give

Only this time they looked entirely sad
I wondered if they were really wanted to see a coward, their dad
They said 'Daddy, don't go, don't go!'
I said, with tears in my eyes, my voice quivering, ' Don't worry, babies, you'll miss daddy so-so'

So as I sank to my knees and fell to the ground
The voices of my girls were lost and would never be found
And as my face hit the soil, I thought how my life had begun and ended in such a blur
I guess that's how it is, being the unknown soldier.

Freedoms Not Free
By Kristen N. Cabral

A man went off to war that day.
Three children sat in bed to prey.

A lonely solider closed his eyes
as smoke from gunshot filled the skies.

A wife at home sat alone.
Scared to death she'd stay that way

she'd prey harder every day.
A solider now in the midst of war

had finally just found a door
a door that opened to his heart

a piece of him that could not part.
A wife, three kids still held his heart.

His mind went back to the war,
but something happened not intended

two shots and his life had ended.
Three children sit in church today

ready to make their first prayer.
One for father safe and sound

walking on the holy ground.
One for mom to fill a hole

that lay deep down inside her soul.
Final words must be said

a woman stands on behalf the dead.
She shuts her eyes says let it be

my heart has told me freedoms not free.

Went to the parade this morning.. we saw a lot of floats that were really spirited for the MEMORIAL day.. it was good to see the folks who honored.. and are honoring..
I was reading what I could while the floats passed by, a float with crosses.. I could only catch one of the crosses as for reading.. the date of birth was 1980s - the death date was 2004. That has stuck in my heart..

I seen Why I do believe too! :)

Boe Bros... I clicked on the header above dedicated that reads "So that we may live free..." Thanks! And I agree. This should be observed everyday.

The Real Story
By Robert A. Fuller

In a city west of Baghdad,
Where women can't be Scantly Clad.

They all wear towels on their heads,
Men and Women sleep in different beds.

One night when the skies grew dark,
The U.S. bombs hit their mark.

Terror struck where terror breeds,
Innocent were killed over dirty deeds.

Deadly feuds, they say they halted,
But once again their actions faulted.

Trying to thwart off suicide bombers,
We're ending up with a world of Jeffery Dahmers.

Reporters asking Why, oh Why
Soldiers screaming Die, Die, Die!

Some were left injured, some were left dead,
It's not fun and games, just pain and dread.

Fallujah, the land where this taking place,
Is being turned into one big parking space.

Striving for peace, but only fighting more,
Is this the start of a third world war?
