Remember The Other Days
Today the rows of white marble
are bejeweled in red, white, and blue–
a sea of flags heavily dotted
with flowers of remembrance.
The shivers are not just from
the spirits of the fallen linger.
I hear them whisper,
“Remember—not only today,
but on all the other days too.”
Let us honor our veterans, not just today, but every day. Let our “Thank you for your service,” be something we live everyday, not just lip service. Don’t let today be just another excuse for the stores to have a sale. Reach out. Make a difference. The greatest thanks we can give our veterans is to create a world where there won’t be a need for more of them.
