“To Them We Owe”
By angelamontana

As we honor the fallen who have given the ultimate sacrifice, we wanted to share a poem by Don Nielson today, on Memorial Day.

Happened today, and in the past;
Sacrifice made, for ours to last.

Wives to widows, families torn;
Gave their lives, for them we mourn.

Gone forever, souls are lost;
Freedom comes, with this cost.

Enjoy the life, they did preserve;
Fate they suffered, did not deserve.

On this day, lest we forget;
To them we owe, our life in debt.
