Freedom

Wars are fought and men have died
Some were lost and some survived
And all for the right for you to choose,
They were just like you and I
Hugged their children, kissed their wives
For Freedom, they did what they had to do

Banned together they stood tall
They fought on as friends would fall
For me and you,
And when the battle it was gone
In the morning of the dawn
The flag of Freedom it still flew for truth

So many paid the sacrifice
Drenched in blood for what is right
Stained and tattered our flag flies today,
The memories of these brave men
I hope we remember now and then
For your Freedom, these men, their lives gave.

Powerful write Bill! We should all be thankful for the men who died for freedom. There are too many men trying to steal it from peoples out there. Excellent! ~JD~
