tribute to our troops

April 12, 2010
Some call them heroes,
Others call them villains,
They fight for their country,
Die for their country,
Loved ones and friends weep,
While others just forget,
The many who gave their lives,
So that we are alive today,
They gave their lives for peace,
Which has not come,
Many of them young,
With families and children,
And unfilled goals,
Fighting and dying for what they believe in,
It makes me sad,
That we honor the ones who survive,
But forget the ones who did not,
I apologize for our country,
Who sends innocent men and women to war,
I’m sorry that you did not get to spend more time with them,
I know I can not understand your pain in the least,
You may think I have no right to speak and you are probably right,
For I am only thirteen and do not understand all in the world,
But for what its worth I give heart felt thanks to those fighting for our freedom,
And great remorse to the family and friends of those who didn’t make it.
