Remembering War's Cost

Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet,
Lest we forget—lest we forget! Kipling
Today is a day for remembering,
Heroes who fought wars for us,
And didn’t come home.
Wives, sisters, and mothers,
Fathers and brothers,

Left mourning,
Missing hearts,
Purple hearts.

  1. I am a history devote. My special area of interest is WWII. On the many occasions I have had to talk with veterans who experienced combat, I heard the same thing spoken by all of them, “I didn’t do anything special. Just did my job. The guys who didn’t come home, they’re the heroes.” Let’s remember those heroes who literally stood in the path between us and them.
