Footnotes

How I got here
or how you got there
are footnotes to a history
that we share
Some sacrificed for us
some sacrificed for all
how do we comprehend
this enormous call
Probably not Plan A
but a chance they were willing to take
laying down their lives
for humanity’s sake
so the freedoms that we cherish
are a debt we cannot repay
to the fallen heroes
we try to honor today
