AM I THE ONLY ONE . . . who appreciates how blessed we are to have so many heroes?

©By: R.L.King
From the book Memories & Time ©2017

To those who’ve fought the enemy, and lived to come back home,
those who’ll spend their years, reliving the horrors they have known.

To those who slept in foxholes, and those who drove the tanks,
those who protect our freedoms  ….to you we give our thanks.

To those who chase the criminals, or pursue a speeding car,
who watch over us each day, yet we know not who you are.

To those who drive the fire trucks, and run in to put out the flames,
who risk your lives each day, though we seldom know your names.

To those who drive the ambulance, or care for the infirmed,
those who make a difference, our respect you all have earned.

To you, our unsung heroes …and to all of your alums,
as your dedication we applaud, we shall all have upturned thumbs.

Here’s to you.

About: Character

The world would be a much better place,
if only we were all as good…
 as the person we pretend to be.
