Oregon’s Six Thousand


We went

We lost our lives

We won freedom for you

We ask only that you not forget

Our deeds

Cinquain

Our local Christian church school that has a big grassy area next to their building implemented the idea of having their school children put up 6000 little flags to honor and pay tribute to the 6000 Oregon soldiers who lost their lives in all the wars.

I visited the display today and was deeply touched by how beautiful it was. Seeing all those little flags blowing in the soft breeze made me so thankful for the freedom we enjoy in our country and for those who paid the price to achieve it.
