Sacrifices

Memorial Day has come and gone. One thing, however, remains. . . the sacrifices men and women have made in the service of our great country. The maimed bodies, the memory of those who died will go on forever.
My wife and I live in one of those tracts of homes with more than one way to reach the main streets to go somewhere. I usually drive the one headed south. Last night we drove the other direction. There, just around the corner from our home, was a display on the front lawn. My throat tightened. I’ll admit I had to wipe at my eyes. What did I see?
A pair of empty combat boots resting atop a field locker, and behind them a rough cross.
Thank you for your sacrifice.
