The Veteran

It is the VETERAN , not the preacher,
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN , not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN , not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.


It is the VETERAN , not the campus organizer,
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN , not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN , not the politician,
Who has given us the right to vote.



It is the VETERAN,
who salutes the Flag,

Whom is to blame for the sacrifice for freedom?

A mother asked a President... "Why did my son have to die in Iraq ?"

A mother asked a President... "Why did my son have to die in Saudi Arabia ?"

A mother asked a President... "Why did my son have to die in Kuwait?"

Another mother asked a President... "Why did my son have to die in Vietnam?"

Another mother asked a President... "Why did my son have to die in Korea?"

Another mother asked a President... "Why did my son have to die on Iwo Jima?"

Another mother asked a President... "Why did my son have to die on a battlefield in France?"

Yet another mother asked a President... "Why did my son have to die at Gettysburg?"

And yet another mother asked a President ... "Why did my son have to die on a frozen field near Valley Forge?"

The answer is the same... "So that others may have life and dwell in peace, happiness, and freedom."

This was emailed to me with no author. I thought the magnitude and the simplicity were awesome.

Whom is to blame for the sacrifice for freedom? Short answer...The enemys of Freedom!
