Our Nations Debt

I look over the fields At Arlington where they lay Their pearly white crosses Stand proudly each day Wheather gleaming in sunlight Or covered with snow Each one stands for freedom Each one in a row We should hang a medal of honor On these crosses that stand These warriors gave everything They've protected our land We owe them a debt We can never repay Please join me and honor them Each and every Veteran's Day

Thank you for the kind word Arlene. I don't write much, work you know. It does relax me and lets me travel to places far removed. Thanks again.

Well said, Timothy. We owe a lot to those who make sacrifices or die for their country. May they be remembered with pride. // paul
