For Are Fallen Soldiers


You shall never  be forgotten for though 

you may be gone from this 

world your spirit will live  forever 

it lives in the laughing eyes of children  who

are free from want and oppression 

it lives in the bravery and conviction 

of those who still struggle for liberty

and it lives in me for i promise to cherish every breath of freedom 

that you paid the ultimate price to secure 

i ask only that i might be granted some 

small fraction of your courage and strength

to face the challenges of my life with an honor

and dignity worthy of your legacy 

may you rest in eternal peace 

safe in the knowledge that your sacrifice 

was not made in vain.

    Beautiful tribute to those who fell and those still living . No one except fools want to go to war . But when called upon our brothers and sisters have answered the call of duty and marched willingly into harms way .
