Today we close our eyes,

we stand, 

we sit

we get down on bended knee

to honor and to mourn the soldiers 

who gave their lives to keep our country free.


Men and women who didn’t start out as heroes

but under the tension…the worry, the stress…

evolved, in those anxious moments, into heroes nonetheless…


And we thank our fallen heroes

who have made our country stronger…

not by being braver than the rest…

but perhaps….by being brave a little longer.
