Our American Heroes

They are true American heroes
The reason America is strong
God Bless America was written
For them and is completely their song

We worship the ground they walk on
We take pride in the people they are
For all the stripes on our flag
Are for them along with the stars

Memories weigh heavily on their shoulders
But others they proudly will tell
For they too saw American heroes
In friends they made and knew well

Yes, they are our American heroes
We cherish them wherever they go
I’ll bet they do not fully realize
That we sincerely treasure them so!

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
