Poem for Memorial Day

Hi Everyone!

I wrote the following poem for Memorial Day, which, for any readers not from the United States, is the day we set aside to honor the men and women throughout our history who died serving their country.  This poem is for all of them, but especially for my cousin Charles.  Please read it, and then forward to others so that we all take a minute during this three day weekend to think about its purpose.  Thanks!
