Fight For Freedom

2009/07/17

Poem from My Daughter 

 

Unexpected bombings are likely
Gunshots ringing through the night
Some say we should not fight this war
But it’s for the freedom of people,
That our soldiers fight.

They risk their lives daily
To save lives like yours
Here you live safely
While they kick down doors

They fight for freedom
Men and women just like you
They defend our country
And still will when this is through

They deserve our support
Those who wear courage like a gem
You can stand behind our soldiers
Or you can stand in front of them.

    Good Morning Jim,
    Very nice Poem from you daughter,
    and thank you… for serving our great country.
    and I agree with Chas,
    good moms and dads produce good kids.

    Jim,
    How about I stand right beside you. Just like I did last time?

    Great poem, man. You’re daughter’s spot on.

    Jim,
    I am a friend of Chas and listed in his blogroll. Your daughter is a very perceptive lady. If you visit my blog and leave your military address, I care package will be sent to you. I live adjacent to Bragg and am retired military.

    Thank you for your service.
