BW22: Happy Memorial Day!

It's book week 22 in our 52 Books Quest and honoring Memorial Day. I’m in between as well.  Reading Brandon Sanderson’s Words of Radiance in his Stormlight archive series, and George Eliot’s Middlemarch. 

Inbetween reading, I’m still binging on Korean Drama’s. This week, it’s Her Private Life.

 We’re right at that in between stage between May and June, so instead of starting something new, here’s a poem in honor of Memorial Day.

We Honor You Today


Susan R. Smith

To all of our veterans

Far and near.

We thank you for your service

For all those years.

You sacrificed your time,

And some gave your life.

You preserved our freedom

By willingly paying the price.

Many of you

Were sent overseas.

You were wounded in battle,

With scars and disease.

But courageous and brave,

You weathered the storm.

You faced every battle

With faith and beyond.

We honor you with joy

For all that you've done.

You stood strong for our country,

For our daughters and sons.

 So no one stands alone,

We walk hand in hand.

Remember, we are with you.

Together we shall stand.

 We salute you today.

Hear what we say.

Let our words speak eloquently

In this special way.

On this day,

Let us express our love and thanks

For the sacrifice you paid.

You served in honor

For many years and days,

And we will never forget

How you were strong and brave.
