The flag Fay’s high

Today is Memorial day.
For most is a day to grill out.
To go camping.
Watching fireworks.
A day to celebrate.

But the sad truth is.
Most don't know.
What it is they are celebrating.
It's just the first day of summer.

Memorial day is a lot more.
It when we all morn the deaths
Of all who died in war.
They died for OUR freedom.

So today raise a flag for those heroes.
Take the time to remember what they did.
Remember that they did for us.
They gave their lives for us.

So I want to think them.
For their sacrifice.
Giving their lives for our freedom.
Think you.
