Freedom's Price

by Karen Shaw Matteson

As you soak up May's warm sunshine
And mix sweetened tea with ice
I hope you will give one small thanks
For your freedom and its price

Memorial Day's a tribute
To your countrymen who died
And to all those who answered "yes"
When the time came to decide

It isn't about politics
Or wars we fought and won
Give thought to this, and  you will see
Someone's daughter, someone's son

America, you're beautiful
We love you shore to shore
The spirit of freedom you represent
Will shine forevermore

So, as you plan that barbeque
Gathering family, friends, and such
Remember those we must not forget
Who paid for freedom's cost
