~ That Special Kind ~

Since the Birth of our Nation
We have sent our Young to War
To do Battle for our Freedoms
For Truth, and Right, and More.

We take them from their Families
And send them all around the World
To show all the other Peoples
How, Freedoms flags unfurled.

They're sent with a wealth of knowledge
That they carry and spread well
Our Ambassadors to others
With a story only they can tell.

So, as we bask in our lifestyles
And gather round the Christmas Tree
Lets say a Prayer and Give Thanks
To those who make us Free.

Lets bring them all Home for a moment
And hold them in our Heart and Mind
For each and every ones a Hero
And each, one of a very Special kind.

Update 2004

I wrote that one for last year
With a wish that was for naught
That maybe they'd be Home for this year
But, guess that was just a silly thought.

We've lost more than we care to count
And have sent even more across the Sea
To try to show another People how to live
In a way they may or may not want to be.

But we send our Sons and Daughters
Moms and Dads, Sisters and Bros
To spend another Christmas Holiday away
And for how many more, who knows?

So, no matter what our feelings are
About this War they're sent to Fight
Let's keep them All in our thoughts and prayers
On this Christmas Eve and every other night.
