I See No Color
I see no color, in a sister or a brother,
But I am red, bravery and valour, the color of blood that was shed.
I see no color, in a father or a mother,
But I am white, pure yet innocent, as we stand colorless for what is right.
I see no color, in a soldier or any other,
But I am blue, vigilant seeking justice, high in the air watching over you.
When I pass by, stand, you live free only because heroes had to die,
I see no color, you do, in life and one another.
My color you see, together, were made by sacrifices taken to be free,
Stand for me because I am you, your flag, red, white, and blue.
What does it take? To me, the hypocrisy of freedom is when people do not realize that the same reason they have the “right” to do this and that derives from the price that was paid. Sure you have rights, but do you have respect for where those rights actually came from? There is a time, place, and way to exercise those rights. We can get the most out of everything our freedom has to offer if we are responsible.
Freedom, hell no it isn’t free, it is an investment that cost, and continues to cost. Understand what the cost of that freedom was and still is, and you will understand that to exercise the return from that investment came at a dear price.
I love this country. I don’t always agree with decisions that are made, and like this post, I am able to make it known. Agree or disagree, that is your freedom. We can still have a beer at the end of the day.
Thank you Veterans for your service!
Thanks for taking a look.
