Memorial Day In TN


THE SUN COMES UP ON THOSE WHO DIED
AND THE ONES WHO ARE STILL ALIVE.
WHATEVER YOU DO TODAY
MAKE SURE YOU REMEMBER THOSE WHO SERVE, SO YOU CAN PLAY
IF YOU ARE LIKE ME YOU FEEL VERY FORTUNATE TO BE
IN THE LAND OF THE FREE. 
FREEDOM HAS A VERY HIGH PRICE
JUST ASK A SOLIDER'S WIFE
ANY OF THEIR FAMILY WILL ECHO THE SAME
BUT THE WORSE OF ALL IS A MOTHER'S PAIN. 

POEM BY KITTY JUSTICE

The Kitty Justice is that you should have been taught how fortunate we have those who are willing to fight for our freedom.

Thanks MB
We had a school that did not have Memorial Day off but were taught all about the day. Maybe all school should teach the history in detail the week before Memorial Day and even take a field trip to a Veteran Cemetery. Might make them appreciate our military and country better. Peace
