Welcome!

It Is the Soldier

It is the soldier,
not the reporter,
who has given us
Freedom of 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 the
Freedom to Demonstrate.

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