Memorial Day Heroes Deserve Honor

Memorial Day

What goes wrong when nations fail their heroes?
Was it the blind command?
What of their noble cause?
What of the blood they shared?

Today the world owes all those who died for freedom a debt.
Exorbitant in its price, rivaled by our inability to pay.
We too easily forget that something worth dying for,
Must certainly be worth living for.

And beyond the mortal world of prophets and lies;
Truth breeds wisdom that can not be ignored.
Will you and I die with the cost un-repaid?
Or can we live with our hearts full of sharing of those who went before?

– D. Iliff

    Wow!!
    I like the association this has with paying our debt to them who paid for our freedom with their Life; by living our Life as a Life worth them having died for. We often forget that the Life we have was bought with a dear price not only own.
    Thanks for a great Memorial Day moment.
