to a country that asked them to give
everything they had.
Can we ever repay the gift they gave?
The gift of freedom and safety
that they provided.
Can we ever comfort their loved ones?
Take the pain from the heart
and the loss from their lives.
Can we ever say thank you to them?
As we go about our lives without a thought
for the security we have.
Can we do anything?
We can remember and we can honor
When the Blue Star turns to Gold.
