A Soldier’s Prayer

Lord, I pray from day to day
To help me understand
How Americans view their heroes
And how they judge a man!


If being someone famous
Is looked upon with awe,
Something’s wrong here with our values
What are we fighting for?

I’m in the military
And proud of what I do
But I need to feel some strength and love
That’s why I pray to you.

Some of our families left us
And now as years have passed
I feel the burden and the stress
For each day could be our last!

I’m in the field of combat
With bullets surrounding me,
There are few that care
for those who’ve died
Protecting those born free!

I’m asking for some comfort
Some support, and one thing more
To get RESPECT and HONOR
From the Americans we fought for!

You and I are the heroes
fighting for our land to be free
And ‘tho no one has heard our names,
we’re the heroes, you and me!

Our awards weren’t televised,
no speech with tears in our eyes
Why is our country too blind to see
that the heroes will always be

Those of us who fought for peace,
we’re the heroes, you and me!

“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional as to how they perceive the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their Nation.”

If you love your Freedom
THANK A VET!
