As Americans
We should all show gratitude
For Americans
Who have made the sacrifice,
So Americans stay free!


A Tanka Poem

For Memorial Day weekend I would like to thank everyone who has lost a loved one to war. 
I remember them on this day with heart felt gratitude for their willingness to serve their country and to pay freedom's price. 
My heart and prayers go out to the families who gave up their sons, daughters, moms or dads for our freedom. 
May God bless you this Memorial Day weekend. Sincerely, Loyd
