A Terrible Price Was Paid Yesterday

For what we so casually handle today

It is the veteran, not the preacher who has given us freedom of religion. 
It is the veteran, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. 
It is the veteran, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. 
It is the veteran, not the campus organizer who has given us freedom to assemble. 
It is the veteran, not the lawyer who has given us the right to a fair trial. 
It is the veteran, not the politician who has given us the right to vote. 
It is the veteran who salutes the flag, who serves under the flag and whose coffin will be draped by the flag.

While we all enjoy the blessings that have come to our country we seem blind to the gradual erosion of those freedoms once held dear, once paid for with the blood of the brave.

Perhaps it is the fact the current generations have paid nothing for these freedoms they are handled so lightly. No longer honoring and giving place to the God who has kept our land and freedom is another cause behind our current decay.

I wonder if those in Flanders Field are resting, in light of what we have done with the freedoms they so dearly paid for??
