Memorial Day by Balddog4 Memorial Day by Balddog4
Today is a day to honor those Veterans who died so that we who are living may enjoy our freedom. So to honor those brave men and women. Those white, black, mexican, asian and arabic Veterans who gave their lives, so that not only their family can live. But to all of Americans, that they will not have to experiance the horrors that they have faced, and will be able to retain their freedoms, that they so honorably gave. I salute to you veterans. May freedom ever be free. :iconsaluteplz:

Now to play a song that fits the honor that the Veterans have. The entire song is here. [link]

Lyrics:
Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I do not own the song.

And to think that last Memorial Day Weekend, Obama renewed the Patriot Act, which violates all the freedoms that the veterans died for on that day. Sad! [link]
