In Remembrance of 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.

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 always!

  1. Thank you Melissa, beautiful image and words to remind us. I think we all forget we are a country at war with men and women fighting for us everyday in far away places.
