> The eleventh day of the eleventh month,
> The day is Veterans Day
> Why this day
> To take off time to play
> No! It is this day
> To stop and pray
> For those who have served,
> Those who are serving
> The family of those who gave everything to serve
> It was at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleven month
> Generals, Commanders, and the brass gathered
> To sign the end of the Great War
> The war to end all wars
> Almost 100 years ago
> It was not the end of all wars
> As a family at a small country Church gather
> Yes, another son will live without a father,
> Another good woman will live without a husband
> As the flag is folded and place in her hand
> A tear runs down the face of the man from whose hand it came
> The bugle makes it last call
> For the brave young man who answered the same call
> As those before
> It seem so inadequate to say
> Thank you for your sacrifice today
> So, take the time
> To give as they have given
> A moment at the eleventh hour
> Of the eleventh day
> Of the eleventh month
> To pray for those who serve
> Those left behind
> Those who will grow up alone
> Today, Veterans Day
