The Price of Freedom!

Freedom, I gave you my husband,
You gave me a neatly folded flag.
Oh, what a trade!

Freedom, I gave you a courageous heart,
You gave me a few well-chosen words.
Oh, what a trade!

Freedom, I gave you the love of my life,
You gave me a medal on a blue ribbon with thirteen white stars.
Oh, what a trade!

They played taps and lowered his body into a cold grave,
Oh, what a price to pay for freedom.

They called him a fallen hero,
They called me the fallen hero’s widow.
They called his child the fallen hero’s son,
Oh, what a price to pay for freedom!

 

As We Remember…

 Once known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day is the day we in the United States honor and remember the fallen men and women who served in the Armed Forces. As we remember this weekend, please check out some of the romances our writers have penned which also honor those who serve. Thank you to the fallen and their families. Your sacrifice to preserve freedom can never truly be repaid.
