Let Us Remember......

 
I think we have all heard this once in our life but this Memorial Day, please stop and say a big THANK YOU to those who gave their lives, so that we may live!!
 
 
 
It is the 
VETERAN
 not the preacher, 
 who has given us freedom of religion. 

It is 
the VETERAN
 not the reporter, 
  who has given us freedom of the press.

It is 
the VETERAN
 not the poet, 
who has given us freedom of speech.
   
It is 
the VETERAN
not the campus organizer, 
who has given us freedom to assemble. 

    
It is 
the VETERAN
 not the lawyer, 
who has given us the right to a fair trial. 


 
It is 
the VETERAN
 not the politician, 
Who has given us the right to vote.
 
 

'A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a blank check
Made payable to 'The United States of America' for an amount of 'up to
and including my life'.
