May God Bless our Veterans ~

One of my all-time favorite rugs ~
hooked by Donna Hrkman

"It is the soldier, not the reporter.
Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet.
Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus organizer.
Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier.
Who salutes the flag.
Who serves beneath the flag.
And whose coffin is draped by the flag.
Who allows the protester to burn the flag."

Please take a moment to thank a veteran ~ today and every day.
May God bless them.
Hugs :)

This rug speaks louder than words. Lest we forget. I echo what you said. May God bless them and our country.
So much sacrifices for our freedom. I can only imagine what our lives would be like if Communism had won the battle and invaded our countries. I think about this each Remembrance Day. I'm so thankful for our freedom.
