We Can Never Thank Them Enough
It is easy to take liberty for granted,
when you have never had it taken from you.
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
~John Fitzgerald Kennedy
The most persistent sound which reverberates through men’s history
is the beating of war drums.
I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask,
“Mother, what was war?”
But fame is theirs—and future days
On pillar’d brass shall tell their praise;
Shall tell—when cold neglect is dead—
“These for their country fought and bled.”
