Remember those who’ve sacrificed


From Ralph Ellis, Lima



Some time back, this article was sent to me by an unknown author. I thought this message again would be appropriate.

“It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.

“It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

“It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to demonstrate.

“It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.”

From Ralph Ellis, Lima
