Freedom is Not Free

It was the veteran

not the reporter,

Who gave us freedom of the press.


It was the veteran

not the poet,

Who gave us freedom of speech.


It was the veteran

not the campus organizer,

Who gave us our freedom to demonstrate.


It was the veteran

who salutes the flag,

who served beneath the flag,

and whose coffin is 

draped by the flag.


If you love your freedom

Thank a VET!


From: Mrs. Jeppson
