To Honor the Fallen

 

How do we honor the fallen?

We love, we laugh, we cry

Every day.

 

How do we honor the fallen?

We sleep, we awaken

Every day.

 

How do we honor the fallen?

We work, we play

Every day.

 

How do we honor the fallen?

Time with our families, our friends

Every day.

 

How do we honor the fallen?

We travel, we rest

Every day.

 

How do we honor the fallen?

We marvel at the oceans, the mountains, the sky

Every day.

 

How do we honor the fallen?

With every breath

Every day.

 

Every day is Memorial Day.
