Memorial Day Poems

Memorial Day Poems

"These are a selection from many wonderful poems written with heavy hearts and great sincerity about the reality of how war affects us all. The old men who send young men to war rarely stop long enough - or at all - to consider their haste to anger and action affects the entire nation for generations to come.

The following are not glory poems but rather the perspectives of those involved in war be they one soldier, a POW, a mother, a daughter, a citizen who knew none of them but felt a duty to pray for them constantly, knowing the personal cost war would bring to all. They span several wars from the Civil War to WWII, the Korean War and today's Iraq and Afghanistan War.

These poems came from the comprehensive Memorial Day site where there is much more than poems to view. Please take a look today as you remember those who came before us."

From Denny: Since HubPages will fuss at me for duplicate content I decided to take down the post from this blog and resurrect it on a HubPages article.

More people will read it when linked to social sites since a lot of people on social sites pass on good posts when they see the address is from a blog. They will read a website article. Thanks for your understanding and taking the time to come here and let me send you to the link.
