“Memento Mori”

Memorial day, though at first, was a day to remember only union soldiers after the civil war, is now a day, that we remember all soldiers who gave their lives for this nation. It is through these, who's loss we mourn, that we are able to express what opinions and beliefs we hold dear, openly, without fear of death. My statements reminded me of a literary work:
IT IS THE SOLDIER
It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.
It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.
It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.
┬ęCopyright 1970, 2005 by Charles M. Province

These are my opinions. The poetry is as stated. For us to partake in these freedoms, and not say "thank you" would be in bad form, and bad taste, and any disrespect should weigh upon a person's heart deeply. It's also my opinion that Karma should bite them in the ass for not taking a moment to say thank you.
