Honor and Remembering By Christine Swiderski



The true hero needs no citation

Giving of themselves without reservation

Defending the defenseless

Standing in the gap

Echoing within their soul

God Bless America

Gaining a foothold

Let Freedom Ring

First responders Heroes rush in

Let our Remembrance

Be of them

Their voices no longer heard

Their souls lifted up

Honor their Memory

For their life they gave up.

Memorial Day

Is not backyard Barbeques

It is Honor and Remembering the Heroes

Giving their lives

For our American Dream

Let that Dream Remain as we Pause

Lifting their Names

As the bell Tolls

So all will know the cost

Isn't Free

Honoring and Remembering

Is the least we can do.
