“We are free…”

is a poem I wrote that honors our soldiers and that I am sharing with Mrs. Shealy's First Grade class at Ninety Six Primary School in Ninety Six, S C…

I am dedicating this poem to two soldiers who serve and who will most likely never meet the students in this class but ultimately make it possible for these children to know freedom today…

I met Gregory and Carol in Greenville, S C when I was shopping...They were on their way to California from Fort Bragg...They service the helicopters that are used in protecting our country...

I mentioned to them that I was on my way to be a guest on WGGS Channel 16 and invited them to watch...They told me that they were staying at a motel as they were traveling through the area...They too said that they would watch the program...

I made it a point to thank them for their service and to tell them that I would dedicate a scrapbook that I am making for Mrs. Shealy's First Grade Class at Ninety Six Primary in Ninety Six, S C, to them...This was the beginning of this poem...

May this poem bless you as you read it and especially all the soldiers who protect our country…

It is through the efforts of our soldiers that our children and all others are blessed with freedom each and every day in this country…

We are free...

Dedicated to Gregory and Carol

Two of our soldiers


Our soldiers

Protect us each

And every day --

They keep us safe

At home

And far away…



Our soldiers

Teach us

What honor means --

They provide us freedom

And

Protect our dreams…



We are grateful

To be free

And we appreciate

Them for each day

We see...



We would like to tell them

Thank you for all they do

And to let them know

We appreciate them too…
