We lose, but look back and see we won.
We take it to heart, that they did not run.
We fight for what has always been right, to find out no one remembers the fights that were fought to give us these rights.
We stand up for what we believe in, to find no one stands behind them.
We see hopes and dreams become cries and screams.
We say a prayer, and watch it travel in the air from here to there.
We know there is hope, love, and sorrow.
We watch them so tall, not ever wanting to see them fall.
They are our children and their children. Our sons. Our daughters.
We cry, we weep, we pray a lot longer.
Along come more that head out the door.
They are strong and young and brave,
As we have raised them,
With love for their country.
Being All That They Can Be. Army.
The Few The Proud. Marines.
Honor Courage Commitment. Navy
Aim High…Fly/Fight/Win. Air Force
Semper Paratus. Coast Guard
Standing strong for those that have come and gone.
Our Hero’s, young and old,
We thank you.
