The weekend plans are beach and sun
Friends, bar-b-q’s, and lots of fun
Travel, Parties, end of May…
Time to celebrate Memorial Day!
We can relax, we’re safe, we’re here
We’ll grill some steaks and drink some beer
We’ll get a sun tan, tell some stories
And just go on with zero worries
What’s wrong with us? How were we taught?
We don’t remember, we forgot!
It seems like we have lost respect
And all who died are in neglect
The wild thing is, they volunteered
They cut their hair and shaved their beard
They went through training and we cheered
They went to war…and disappeared
Some of them teens, some of them fathers
Some were our friends, and some our brothers
Many husbands and some mothers
I’m sure I’m missing many others
Today my heart is filled with pain
We lost so much, with little gain
Our boys and girls who lost their life
Equal six thousand eight and forty five (6,845)
This number adds from nine / eleven
Way more have fought and gone to heaven
The question we must ask is, why?
Should we remember those who die?
What made them go and fight those wars?
Give up their homes and live outdoors
Why volunteer for combat tours?
….Because they love the U.S. shores!
The wars they fight are far away
To give us freedom every day
To let us dream, and build and play
Because of them, we have leeway
I know they’d want us to succeed
Stand up, move forward, take the lead
Bring people with us to be great
We’ll change the world if we don’t wait
So to conclude, it’s very plain
Let’s show them, they didn’t die in vain
Create a life which they fought for
God… bless all troops who died in war
“Live your purpose”
