On Memorial Day

I don't personally know anyone who has died fighting,
although I know plenty of fighters
I admire those who go to war
and the families that stay behind
They have courage, bravery, and a sense of code
I thank them with all my heart.

Today always makes me think of this poem and of the poppies my grandmother used to make and help sell. Even though she's gone, I buy one every year...
