Honoring Those Who Served

Military headstones and American flags. Commemorating and thanking those  who sacrificed their lives for our freedom and country. Memorial Day 2017

I do not know your name –
Nor for which battle you died.
I do not know your home,
Nor the tears that were cried.

I do not know where you rest –
Nor the promise broken.
I do not know your uniform,
And your fears lay unspoken.

But, I know your spirit exists –
That your courage is admired,
And your sacrifice is honored
By each soul that’s inspired.

And I offer you from my heart,
Thank you, to guardians unknown,
For offering yourselves for all of us,
That we may keep freedom…
Our home.

~Sherrie Ball
