Those brave and strong,
lauded in story and song,
who pierced through the night
with the force of their might…


Those gentle and kind,
strong in heart and in mind,
who lead others toward tomorrow
and overcame each and every sorrow…


Those noble and proud
who shirked not the shroud,
who knew the cost for all their deeds,
who knew where the path of a hero leads…


Those who stand upright today,
who strive to find a better way,
who know full well that they may fall,
but even still they risk it all…


I know now that the stories are true:
that heroes live within each of you,
and you need not fear a shallow grave –
glory waits upon the brave.
