The Ghosts of Soldiers.

Today you walk among us.

Today we see you.

In our hearts.

In our minds.

In our souls.

Today we remember.

We breathe, because you gave your breath.

Our hearts beat, because yours stopped.

We walk free, because you cleared the way.

Today we remember.

When we feel the wind on our face.

When we see the sun shine upon us.

When we look out to the horizon that is free to roam.

We know this land we live had a price and you paid it.

Today we remember.

We don’t know your names.

We don’t know the reason you chose to fight.

We don’t know the moment of your sacrifice.

However, we thank you.

For today, you walk among us.
