On Memorial Day We Don'T Think About Them - Poem by Shalom Freedman
ON MEMORIAL DAY WE DON’T THINK ABOUT THEM
On Memorial Day we don’t think about them
Their names are not on any special list-
They are the ones who fought the battles
Day after day year after year
And yet were not killed in battle-
They are the heroes
The public does not know
And does not recognize-
Do they and did they resent the absence of attention?
The absence of Hymns of Glory
Of ceremonies of Remembrance?
Or are they and were they simply grateful for
Having fought the battles and survived them?
For having done their part
To keep their nation and their people alive?
