Source of life,
We stand on the shoulders of giants;
Those who went before us, blazing the trail of honor with their actions.
We see them, wearing their hats from wars before our time.
We forget their valorous actions, we look away, avoiding eye contact.
Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow, may we honor them with our words and
May praises of thanksgiving for their service flow as easily off our lips as the greeting of the day.
May we set the example for those around us, reminding those around us that commitment to the ideals of this institution of freedom are just as powerful today as they were 241 years ago.
