19+ Brave Poems About Memorial Day: The Price Of Freedom

Memorial Day is one of those holidays that people tend to overlook in American culture. It’s not as flashy or vibrant as the 4th of July, and it doesn’t have much significance for kids who are too young to remember 9/11.

The holiday is about remembering and honouring those who died while fighting for American freedom. It is also a great time to reflect on the sacrifices others make for us every day, like our veterans and active-duty military. 

Here are a few heroic poems that honour those who fought for what they believed in, even if it cost them their life. These poems will resonate with anyone who has lost someone dear to them, so let’s get started!
