Memorial Day


American Flag

To rule the world with violence, is their one and only goal,
Terror is their method, they want complete control.
We've seen it all before, and we could not let it be,
We gave our lives for freedom, for the world, and for you and me.
We fight all forms of oppression, helping victims far and near,
To keep the world from chaos, to porotect what we hold dear,
America's the only country, that gives with it's whole heart.
And asks so very little, we always do our part,
So let's unite again to subdue our newest foe,
What ever we must do, where ever we must go,
Let's show the world once more, that America is blessed,
With people who are heroes, who meet each and every test.

From The Tyrants, by Joanna Fuchs

Great post for Memorial Day. Loved it. I also loved all the pictures of your critters in your backyard. I have a woodpecker that comes around and lots of doves. I see squirrels but never chipmunks. Have a good week.

What a great poem. Hope you had a very nice Memorial weekend. I love your back yard. Before we moved here we had 3.65 acres with many creatures that came along with it. Deer, turkeys, squirrels, foxes, birds, raccoons and etc. Loved to watch them all. We now have a very small parcel of land which is rented in a mobile home park but our back yard is the river with still more creatures to enjoy that we didn't have at the other place. God is good.
