land of opportunity, Home of the Brave
Where the American's Flag and Eagle fly for one
To see. Our Nationís Flag ripples proudly in the
From sunny California to the sandy shores of
Across America up to the ocean seas.
Many of our brave and patriotic sons and
Daughters who fought on foreign shores, have
To their eternal rest.
On Memorial Day Americans honor our veterans,
Deserve our praise and glory, for they are truly
Some made the ultimate sacrifice to keep our
Safe and free, they paid our future obligations
Name of liberty.
Please do not take for granted the legacy they
Bequeath, for these brave heroes never heard the
'Run' or 'defeat.'
So always remember and shall we never forget, to
Our veterans and active service men and women
Chance we get.
Thatís what, Memorial Day means to me."
