"The Fallen Ones"

As you stoke your fires and enjoy your drink 
Take some time this weekend to stop and think
Of those who sacrificed it all for you and your family
To those who fought and died in our military
It's not about burgers and brats on the grill
It's about those who died for our free will 
At some point each day raise your beer or your tea glass
To honor and salute those who died protecting your ass
To the parents who mourn their child for our rights
And the children who lost parents fighting our fights
For those who gave everything for America's security
Salute them each day and let them not fade to obscurity.
