69. For the 4th

[image: img][image: img] I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG,

OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,

AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR WHICH IT STANDS,

ONE NATION UNDER GOD,

INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY

AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! KEEP IT LIT!![image: img] KEEP IT LIT!

For all of our other military personnel, where ever they may be

And God Bless our Military who are protecting our Country for our freedom. Thanks to them, and their sacrifices we can celebrate the 4th of July

We must never forget who gets the credit for the freedoms we have, of which we should be eternally grateful.

[image: img][image: img][image: img][image: img] I watched the flag pass by one day, It fluttered in the breeze.

A young Marine saluted it, And then he stood at ease..

[image: img]

I looked at him in uniform So young, so tall, so proud, With hair cut square and eyes alert He'd stand out in any crowd.

[image: img]

I thought how many men like him Had fallen through the years. How many died on foreign soil How many mothers' tears?

[image: img]

How many pilots' planes shot down? How many died at sea How many foxholes were soldiers' graves? No, freedom isn't free.

I heard the sound of Taps one night, When everything was still, I listened to the bugler play And felt a sudden chill. I wondered just how many times That Taps had meant "Amen,"

When a flag had draped a coffin. Of a brother or a friend.

I thought of all the children, Of the mothers and the wives, Of fathers, sons and husbands With interrupted lives.

I thought about a graveyard At the bottom of the sea

[image: img]

Of unmarked graves in Arlington. No, freedom isn't free.
