Happy Memorial Day

It is the VETERAN, not the preacher
who has given us freedom of religion.

It is the VETERAN, not the reporter
who has given us freedom of the press.

It is the VETERAN, not the poet
who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer
who has given us freedom to assemble.

It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It is the VETERAN, not the politician
who has given us the right to vote.

It is the VETERAN who salutes the flag,
and it is the VETERAN who serves under the flag.

If you are able to read this, thank a teacher.
If it’s in English, thank a VETERAN.
