Inspiration: Veterans Day


VETERANS DAY

By Taylor Weinman


Representing the red white and blue

The colors of our flag stand out proud and true.

The white stars on blue background with red and white stripes

Remind me of these veterans, who all risked their lives.

Just so the people of the U.S. could all live in peace and be free

These are the heroes that represent you and me.

They stood up strongly, united as one,

And kept up the fighting until they were done.

And although some have fallen, and lost their lives in war,

We pray for each one of them.

And now that their souls live on forever more,

Above in God's hands.

They watch over our nation,

And give us strength to triumph over others with strong anticipation.

So every year, when this day comes by,

Think of all the veterans that while fighting, had to die.

And remember that they were people

With fire and passion embedded inside.

They died for this country,

So remember and honor them with pride



I want to say a personal thank you to all who have served and continue to serve our country! Our lives would not be the same without your loyalty, bravery, and sacrifices! God Bless You and keep you!
