Chosen Words

Thursday, September 13, 2018 by The Press in Opinion


Monuments are memorials

To honor brave men and women;

Who fought in battle, and gave their lives,

For Americans to live in freedom.

Today’s youth has “too much freedom of speech,”

They do not know what they say!

They trample on our Commandments,

And our Constitution they threw away!

They didn’t fight for their freedom!

It was given to them for free.

By the people who died in battle,

To save them, and you and me.

What makes them think they deserve the right

To destroy all our history?
