ANZAC DAY - Lest We Forget


 IT'S THE SOLDIER
It's the soldier, not the reporter,
who has given us freedom of the press.

It's the soldier, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It's the soldier, not the campus organizer,
who has given us the freedom to domonstrate.

It's the soldier, not the lawyer,
who had given us the right to a fair trial.

It's the soldier, who salutes the flag, serves under the flag and
whose coffin is draped by the flag,
who gives the protestor the right the burn the flag.

__Father Dennis Edward O'Brien, USMC

  2. So true! Where would we be if not for the sacrifices made by so many for our freedom and life as we know it.
