Today, We Remember…

Standard

In remembrance of Pearl Harbor and Veterans spread throughout this world.

Today we remember those who have walked in silence,

In order to ensure each citizen’s safety they were accompanied by violence,
They chose to dedicate their lives to our protection,

If not their gaze be met with respect then turn the other direction,

As this nation stands divided,

They still remain united,

Their causes stood without blame,

Yet, are we not the same?

The rights we practice came at a cost,

That was purchased with the lives that they lost,

No matter each individual’s history,

Their selflessness acts enough like a victory,

Our honor, respect and pride they have continually earned,

Although, from them there remains much we must come to learn.
