We Don’t Know Each Other [Memorial Day]

We don’t know each other. We’ve never met.

But, because of you, my family & I have the right to cook burgers, hot dogs & steaks on the grill this weekend if I want.

Because of you, I can hang out at the lake all weekend, go see an R rated movie or hang out at a bar if I want.

Because of you, I can rock out to Lynyrd Skynyrd, AC/DC and Metallica whenever I want.

Because of you, I can openly and publicly disagree with the choices of my government if I want.

Because of you, I can do a lot of things I take for granted.

I’d like to shake your hand for what you’ve done for me.

I’d like to give you a hug for what you’ve done for me.

But I can’t, because of what you’ve done for me.

You gave up your ability to cook on the grill.

You gave up your ability to hang out all weekend.

You gave up your ability to listen to great music.

You gave up your family.

You gave up your children.

You gave up your life.

For me.

Even though we don’t know each other. We’ve never met.

~ Big Dave (2016)
