Sacrifice for You and for Me

Thoughts while sitting on the Amphitheater steps of the Unknown Soldier Tomb:

Oh, the tears, the blood shed
Represented here in this place.      
Row after Row after Row
White tombstones
Representing sons, fathers, uncles.
Real live people.
Real live losses.

Days gone by.
Ancestors, family, friends.
What sacrifices!
All to secure my freedom and yours.
Words cannot describe
The debt we owe
To the many who’ve gone on before.

I am humbled, speechless
Driven to my knees.
My only response
Is Thank You.
And then the tears flow.
