WENT THE DAY WELL

                                                                 Went the day well?
                                                                 We died and never knew.
                                                                 But, well or ill,
                                                                 Freedom, we died for you
                                                                                          John Maxwell Edmonds

  2. I thank you as well. My parents met in the military in WWII (my Dad served as an Army chaplain and my mother was an army nurse). This was a day they both held in special reverence.

  3. What a great poem. We owe a lot to the men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedom.
