We Remember


We Remember

This is from facebook. Wrote this a few years ago in honour of my great-grandfather and all the men and women who have served our country. May we never forget.

We Remember
dedicated to my Great-Grandfather, William Whitney
by Stephanie Steeves

We remember those who fought-
Who with their lives our freedom bought.They left their homes, families, their all
because they heard the oppressed man's call.

"Lest we forget!" the cry is heard.
Be telling others, spread the word.
The responsibility belongs to you and me,
Share their story from sea to sea.

We remember those who went-
Some volunteered, others were sent.
They all served their country well.
Our job is now to go and tell.

We remember those who fought-
Who with their lives our freedom bought.
They were willing to go and die
Because they heard the oppressed man's cry.
