Call to service – July 4


I notice,
I remember,
yet I have no idea
what you gave for
my freedoms.

I see,
I listen for,
those without,
who don’t
have freedom yet.

I pray,
that we never stop,
reaching toward each other
with open hands.

Happy July 4th.
Let’s not let the past stop us from creating the future.

  1. Nice poem for today Ali. I try to remember those who sacrificed so much which enables me to live in a free country.
