By: Jesseca DawnAnother day, another drill,
The same routine, there was no thrill.
The sun shone bright, the sky was clear,
All was well as noon drew near.
Then suddenly, the peace was shattered,
As the shots rang out, the people scattered.
Not caring for themselves, five men did as trained,
Entering combat mode, they worked to save others,
Despite the wounds they sustained.
While they saved lives, all five lost their own,
They did what they could, but then fell to the stone.
Their eyes closed, and the sounds faded away,
As they breathed their last, and bid earth farwell.
They served our country, they gave their all.
They survived the battles fought overseas,
only to be killed in our very own streets.
They fought for the freedom of the one who killed them,
They gave their lives, these few brave men.
They didn’t want to be heroes, but that’s what they’ve become,
Their legacy lives on, through their families left behind.
May we never forget what happened, their lives they signed,.
They said they’d give their all, and that’s just what they did.
They stood their ground, they never hid.
And in the face of a trial, they gave their lives,
We owe much to them and their sacrifice.
. . .And I won't forget the ones who died
Who gave that right to me
And I gladly stand up next to you
And defend her still today
'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land
God bless the U.S.A.--Lee Greenwood
