What We Remember

What we remember

"We the people of the United States of America
establish justice, insure domestic tranquility
promote the general welfare
and secure the Blessings of Liberty
One nation under God
with liberty and justice for all
and all men are created equal
No State shall make or enforce any law
abridging the privileges or immunities
of citizens
whenever any government
becomes destructive of these ends
it is the right of the people
to alter or abolish it
innocent until proven guilty."

We remember our warriors
tagged and numberless
colors of Desert Storm fatigues
camouflage of spilled blood and youth
truths not self-evident
out of scope's range.

The American Dream

We remember
not to forget.
