Excerpt from my book, "Secure the Fort! (And Remain Under God) A Military Mother's Message to America" Xlibris 2007
The Last Full Measure
Blue to Gold means tragedy
Pain in a parent’s heart
Grief untold in flag’s 13 folds
One from them did depart
Strength is found in honor
Determined to keep memory alive
These mothers in grief will serve
Soldiers’ children, parents, wives
We honor their loved one’s sacrifice
For us, the last full measure made
Our prayers are with them all
As a tearful “farewell” is bade
When you see this precious flag
With a gold star on display
Say a prayer for the family who
Sacrificed for your freedom today.

"Lest we forget~" You have reminded us to remember those who have and are sacrificing their lives to keep the world as free as is possible from terrorism, and to give people Freedom. So many times we forget. Good for the reminder.
