Lest We Forget


Ode For Soldiers Who Lost Their Lives Defending Freedom
They shall grow not old
as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
we will remember them.
LEST WE FORGET
***********************************

It is the soldier, not the reporter, that has given us freedom of the press
It is the soldier, not the poet, that has given us freedom of speech
It is the soldier, not the campus organiser, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate
It is the soldier, not the lawyer who has given us the right to fair trial
It is the soldier,
who salutes the flag,
who serves beneath the flag and
whose coffin is draped by the flag
that allows the protestor to burn the flag.
Amen.
Father Denis E O'Brien
Peace of Christ to ALL
