Remembering Why We Are Free

We will remember
Since it’s November
Who made us a free country
Many sacrifices a soldier made
Soldiers came with no fear of death
Until it became their final breath
Poor soldiers died
Their family cried

We will remember
Since it’s November
The soldiers who came home
Or the soldiers who fell alone
They thought of you and me
They made us free
We will shed tears
For the brave soldiers who fought away our fears

Now we remember
Since it’s November
All the things that made us free
Everybody’s free, even you and me
Because the soldiers thought of all of us
We rejoice in being free
We live our lives how we please
But we will always remember

“Remembering Why We Are Free” was written in recognition of Remembrance Day by my younger daughter, Shekinah, when she was in grade 8 (2009). Thank you, Shekinah, for allowing me to post it here.
