I Stand Before You
I stand before you all today
but not one eye can see my way
My time arrived, to leave this earth
A fact so planned, to every birth
It happened where I had to go
My torch for life was so aglow
I transferred while in uniform
Protecting freedom, through a storm
Should I resent I died for you
Not on my life, red white and blue
Please help my family though each day
Tell all my friends, try not to stray
And of the country I did love
Do think of me, through God above
Your memories, brought forth this day
Send love to us, who could not stay
2001 ~ Roger J. Robicheau, Former SP5, US Army
We hope all who visit this post had a memorable, solemn Memorial Day, and spent time contemplating the sacrifice made by those who died to preserve our Liberty. Our constitutional republic survives due their selfless devotion to duty and country. We remain free because of their deeds. Remember them, and give thanks for what they gave.
I only wish I had seen more flags displayed today. The absence of Old Glory pains me, because there are two reasons for not flying our colors. The first I can understand; people don’t know. These can be educated. The second, that people don’t care… I have a real problem with that. Because it isn’t a reason – it’s a lack of reason.
God bless America. May we always have Patriots who give their all for their country.
