The calendar calls for a patriotic theme!
Some will reminisce with grateful emotions;
Others choose to spend another holiday
occupied with ordinary commotions.
Hold on there! Give a moment for reflection:
Honor, duty, sacrifice for a worthy goal,
Everyone free, so everyone can choose
Godly values that ennoble the soul.
A nation must have citizens and leaders with
Honesty, morality, fulfilling obligations,
Loyalty, integrity, dependability,
Bold enough to turn from on-going temptations.
Fly the flag! Salute our servicemen and women,
Keep alert, prepared, speak with wisdom’s information;
You have one life to live your very best, so
Demonstrate a thoughtful appreciation.
Pray for our nation, and the nations of the world!
