Meet Samantha Styres

by Samantha Styres

Remember the people that died
The innocent, the young, the old
People lost loved ones and people, cried
Some were only young when sent to war
Some we never saw again

Remember the way life was guns and blood
The way you couldn't even leave your house
You lived your life in fear
Dreams shattered, lives shattered

Remember these people are our heroes
These people are the soldiers
They fought for us, brought us freedom,
Not only freedom; they brought us love and life

Remember who you are and that you are loved
You are here today because the soldiers fought
for you
