Saige: Remember…

By Saige

Remember those who fought for us

And our country.

Those who risked their lives for us to live in a free country.

Lots of soldiers died.

Some survived.

But came back with horrific injuries.

But we can’t just give all the credit to those who came back.

We also have to give credit to those who fought for our country but didn’t come back.

Wounds and scratches.

Gun shots.

Many needed treatment.

Nurses working all day.

Nurses struggling to the limit.
