Veterans Day sentiment..

Poster image Stand Up For America

Ordinary men
act extraordinary,
fierce purpose prevails.

A band of brothers
fight to the death for each other
and the world-at-large.

War, like it or not,
determines one’s survival.
“Life” does not take sides.

Peace is an ideal;
easier said than done, right?
Honor our fallen.

Life at war with life;
there is no permanent peace
’til heaven’s on Earth.

Armed Services all
remind me their loyalty:
one band of brothers.

Stark reality
sinks in. Strangers died for me!
Life is greatest gift.

Nation under God,
One Purpose, One way of Life:
Brother’s Keepers all.

I bow to fallen
soldiers past, present, future:
Reverence unfolds.
