It's hard to believe a 3rd grader is the author of this beautiful poem.
To all the men and women who put their lives at risk each day
_ We remember you.
We salute you and your family for all that you do.
_ Thank You.

Remembering ...
Red, white and blue
For those we knew
Who marched off to war.
We honor them now
And show them how
Their bravery we can't ignore.
Heroes of war,
They were so much more,
Father and brother and friend.
Flags at half mast
For those of the past
To whom our gratitude we send.
We place flowers on the graves
Of those who were brave,
We salute them far and wide.
Seeing poppies galore
While our hearts soar,
remembering proudly those who have died.
