Looking through the images online of Memorial Day tributes is heart wrenching. Children and Wife’s and Mother’s and Father’s and Sister’s and Brother’s and Friend’s honoring the men and women who gave it all to their country. Freedom is not free.
My favorite slam poet wrote a poem about the horrific rate that soldiers that come home and kill themselves. This is something I have some personal experience with in my life. The pain of seeing a family member come home and then died at their own hands really makes you take a long hard look at what our freedoms really cost. Freedom is not free. Let’s not forget.
