Memorial Day was created not for picnics and parties but as a day to specifically remember those who have given their lives in defense of our country and her ideals or in defense of another’s freedom. Let’s not forget the sacrifice that they have made so that we can have the freedoms that we enjoy today. So I simply offer TAPS. –E.C.
Day is done, gone the sun.
From the hills, from the lake, from the skies.
All is well, safely rest.
God is nigh
Fading light, dims the sight.
And a star, gems the sky, gleaming bright.
From afar, drawing near.
Fall the night.
Thanks and praise, for our days.
‘Neath the sun, Neath the stars, ‘Neath the sky,
As we go, this we know.
God is nigh.
