Imagine.

Imagine you're fighting,

In a desert, in the middle of no where.

Where bullets go as fast as lightning,

And nothing seems fair.

 

Imagine.

Imagine you're familu.

Being so distant, and miles away.

Where they wonder if they'll ever see you again.

And you wonder the same, about them.

 

Imagine.

Imagine the satisfication.

Of knowing you've saved so many lives.

Watching the American Flag rise.

Signaling a job well done.

 

Imagine.

Imagine the looks.

On your family's faces,

When you are reunited once again.

And the hugs, and kisses.

 

Imagine.

Imagine the strength,

You will have.

Where you feel as if you can overcome anything.

The courage, the bravery.

 

These are the lives of soldiers.

Of veterans.

The reason why we walk,

On the American land.

 

The reason why we're free,

The reason why the American flag,

Waves freely in the wind.

The reason why we're our own nation.

 

So, I say thanks.

Thank you to the men and women.

Who sacrifice their lives for us.

Thank you to the veterans.

 

Thank you to the people,

Who lost their lives.

For our country.
