Unconditional Sacrifice

Unconditional Sacrifice
By Donette Pustejovsky

We worry about violence in movies and video games
You deal with violence and death every day

We sometimes dread family get-togethers
You wait for months, sometimes years,
and hope you will see your family again

We dread the morning alarm
You do not sleep to ensure our safety and if you do,
you sleep on the ground

We reluctantly go to work to make a living
You work 24 x 7 to ensure our freedom and safety

We complain about too much email, spam and junk mail
You wait and hope for letters from home

Some celebrate Memorial Day,
not really contemplating it's meaning
You continue, unconditionally, to give us that right

God bless you today and every day.
