In memory of those who have given their lives for our freedom…
because freedom isn’t free.
We set aside this day to reflect and honor the men and women who have paid the ultimate price for our freedom.
To say “thank-you” is really not enough, but still, it is something that should be said today and every day.
Thank you for giving your life for our freedom. We honor, love and respect you!
Since our inception, we’ve been free
Praise those brave who’ve kept this to be
America, how blessed we are
By those who dare fight, each bright star
Our brave do not dodge, love bears pride
When called to move out, how they stride
They show they’re our absolute plus
They’ll not send mixed signals to us
They keep our strong freedom alive
In a world where it’s tough to survive
All who proudly marched in our past
Their deeds helped this nation to last
To the brave war has taken away
Hold Solemn Memorial Day
Honor each with love and respect
Take time to feel sorrow, reflect
Pray to God as our young march on
Leading liberty through each dawn
Show thankfulness, wholehearted care
They stand for us, with pride, sincere
