Memorial Day - Poem by Kathryn Tyler King

What does it mean to remember?
Did we lose anyone in any war?
It really doesn't matter does it?
We have to remember those lost.
We have to remember their sacrifice.

Stop your busyness and your hurry.
Take time to place a flag or two
On a veteran's grave in a cemetery
or when you meet a veteran alive.
We must remember their sacrifice.

We've seen so many wars haven't we?
I'm sure there will be many more.
Our young men and women will go
To foreign countries and our shores
We must remember their sacrifice.

When flags are flying on that day,
Take time to say a prayer or two.
Take time to think of others here
and those away from home alone.
We must remember their sacrifice.

We don't know all they suffered.
We don't understand reasons why.
We need to admire their willingness
to protect our beautiful country here.
We must remember their sacrifice.
