A Thousand Times We Pause…

Gratitude and memory
may never be enough
to thank you for your courage,
your strength, your service, your love.
A thousand times we pause
and still
our silence can’t repay
the sacrifice of futures
for our freedoms on this day.
Today we pause-
to lend our hearts to you,
our thoughts reach back in time.
May you somehow hear
our whispers of gratitude.

Written May 26, 2014

Dedicated to all those who have served and those who currently serve to encourage justice, peace, and human rights for all. It is dedicated to those who stand up for life and liberty, and who continue to allow us the chance to pursue our own kind of happiness.

May you all have a healthy, happy, and safe weekend.
