Thank The Men And Women - Poem by Ray Hansell

I’m thankful for the freedom
I enjoy each and every day
I’m thankful for the freedom
That lets me go my own way

I’m thankful for the freedom
To pray as I please
I’m thankful for the freedom
To satisfy all my own needs

I’m thankful for the liberties
My freedom has given me
I’m thankful for the red, white and blue
That flies to let me know I’m free

I’m thankful for the voice I have
When I want to disagree
Knowing I can speak out
And my freedom stays with me

But most of all I’m thankful for
The men and women who all fight
They give me all the freedoms
That makes my life so nice

    I too am thankful. We need to be vigilant because these freedom's are being attacked on all sides. (Report) Reply

    I too am thankful. We need to protect this freedom too, from all that is attacking it. And, there is plenty that is attacking it these days! (Report) Reply
