F-ettered not our litany
R-eflections throughout history
E-nduring time has set all free
E-ndemic rights each one shall see
D-emocracy's our sanctity
O-ur future's true proclivity
M-ankind's responsibility

Freedom... the one concept we should always embrace... A very unique way of describing it! I'll never look at the word freedom in quite the same way... Thanks...

Being a Marine, I must say thank you for such a poem. Since I am one of the "few" personally responsible for maintaining that freedom. You are a great poet. Keep it up.

HappiNESS is living in a country built on freedom.
CleverNESS is writing this type of poem in acronym form about it.
