Letters to the editor

Editor, the Advocate:

When not showing respect for our flag or our creed

is certainly our right guaranteed to all of us indeed.

Try doing this in some countries and several due East,

you may suffer greatly, even given the least.

You might end up missing or end up in jail

spending your life in a cold small cell.

There are many issues that confront us this day;

but expression of thought is our right and our way.

The agony felt daily to some in the mid-east

is a lesson we are watching with no signs of peace.

Our independence is great, but it has come at a great cost.

Many have given their lives ad others are lost.

We call the latter MIA’s or POW’s and know not where they are;

but remembered by loved ones leaving hope’s door ajar.

So many have suffered to keep this land free;

it’s our duty to remember them, that’s all of us, including me!

So, enjoy the 4th, and have some great fun,

but remember our freedom fighters and what they have done!

Don Cook, Port Lavaca
