MEMORIAL DAY 2006

*******************************************************

AMERICA ,AMERICA, FROM SEA TO BRIGHT SHINING SEA,
GOD LOOKED DOWN FROM HEAVEN AND SHED HIS LIGHT ON THEE.
SO MANY OF HIS CHILDREN HAD PAID THE COST SO DEAR,
THEY CAME FROM EVERY COUNTRY ,THEY CAME FROM FAR AND NEAR.
THEY GAVE THEIR LIVES TO PROTECT THEIR COUNTRY AND THEIR HOME,
ONE OF THE GREATEST GIFTS THAT MAN HAS EVER KNOWN.

***********************************************************************

SO WE MUST REMEMBER THEM ON THIS MEMORIAL DAY,
AND FOR THE ONES THEY LEFT BEHIND FOR THEM WE ALL MUST PRAY.
SO HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY TO YOU AND ALL THE ONES YOU LOVE,
 IT'S BECAUSE OF ALL THOSE BRAVE SOLDIERS WATCHING US FROM ABOVE.
SO GET DOWN ON YOUR KNEES TONIGHT AND THANK THEM EVERY ONE,
AND REMEMBER OUR FREEDOM IS BECAUSE OF EVERY THING THEY'VE DONE.

***************************************************************************

 

HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY TO ALL
