Thank a Veteran Today

Freedom is not Free
by Ashley Persyn

There is a price we pay for freedom
For it is not truly free
But rather paid for by the contributions of veterans
To buy our liberty.

As their blood drains from their body and runs like a river through the grass,
Over the years it's forgotten, war is placed in  our past.
I don't think we all realize the importance veterans play
as they voluntarily serve America each and every day.

We should honor the veterans for they act like a shield
Protecting us from danger, keeping America healed.
So if you would take a second to commemorate
You will instantly see
We owe veterans our gratitude
For they are the reasons we are free.

Be sure and thank a veteran today!
