In Gratitude I Bow

_______________________________ In silence and in prayer................. _______________________________ For those who gave everything and never failed to protect for those who left loved ones and tried hard not to look back for those who made it home and for those who's spirits flew on... For you my hat is off in Gratitude I thank God for people like you.. I remember with thanksgiving in painful facets from within each man and women who fought for this country until the bitter end.. Come home my proud soldiers come home once again come home my mighty soldiers come home to mend... In Gratitude I bow... _______________________________ A Debbie Guzzi Contest

    What a special poem of gratitude for our military members, Rick. We should not forget that as we enjoy Thanksgiving dinner, we owe our freedom to these soldiers. I think this is the est entry I've seen for Deb's contest. Bravo! Love, Carolyn

    I hope many Soupers get a chance to read this as it is a truly heartfelt piece that shows the wisdom of a child. If adults followed children's examples, the world would be a much better place. Again, this is such a good poem. I hope you consider submitting it for magazine publication. Thank you for your kind comment. Karen
