Memorial Day 2017

Arlington National Cemetery
Tomb of The Unknown Soldier // Arlington National Cemetery

I do not know your name-

Nor for which battle you died.

I do not know your home-

Nor the tears that were cried.

I do not know where you rest-

Nor the promises broken.

I do not know your uniform-

And your fears lay unspoken.

But, I know your spirit exists-

That your courage is admired.

And your sacrifice is honored

By each soul that’s inspired.

And I offer you from my heart-

Thank you, to guardians unknown,

For offering yourselves for us all

That we may keep freedom…

Our home.
