    Default Veteranís Day

    We honor all those who served or are serving.

    Oh beautiful for heroes proved
    In liberating strife
    Who more than self, their country loved
    And mercy more than life
    America, America may God thy gold refine
    'Til all success be nobleness
    And every gain divined
    And you know when I was in school
    We used to sing it something like this, listen here
    Oh beautiful, for spacious skies
    For amber waves of grain
    For purple mountain majesties
    Above the fruited plain
    But now wait a minute, I'm talking about
    America, sweet America
    You know, God done shed his grace on thee
    He crowned thy good, yes he did, in brotherhood
    From sea to shining sea
    You know, I wish I had somebody to help me sing this
    (America, America, God shed his grace on thee)
    America, I love you America, you see
    My God he done shed his grace on thee
    And you oughta love him for it
    'Cause he, he, he, he crowned thy good
    He told me he would, with brotherhood
    (From sea to shining Sea)
    Oh Lord, oh Lord, I thank you Lord
    (Shining sea)

    IMO the best way to honor any veteran or active duty personnel is to have peace. I fully understand that sometimes war is unavoidable but that doesnt mean we shouldnt try.
