Back Home Where The Buffalo Roam

Updated on May 29, 2011

At Least At One Time

We could look out to the prarie and see the wonderful land

One day wonder could this be a place where we could live in peace

We could raise our families and watch them grow up

Generation after generation

Unfortunately we don't live in such a simple world

There is always someone trying to challange our way of life

They will stop at nothing to take away the freedoms that we all deserve

So it is fitting that we pay tribute to all the armed forces for the protection they give

Past and present

We too often forget so many who have served and sacrificed their lives

Out of sight out of mind

Many men and women who left their families

So that we can enjoy ours

As we kick off summer with Memorial Day weekend

Please take just a few minutes of your time to appreciate so many wonderful people

By being extra nice to an angry person

Forget the problems that have pulled our families apart

Remember what makes our families great

Each and every one of us that is different in some small way

Help someone instead of talking about them badly

I am sure our soldiers will feel the love

That they made the dream of freedom our way of life

I am proud to say I am forever thankful and I think we should all pay tribute

For no matter how many things in this world are not right

We are still the greatest nation in the world and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else

May we all enjoy a wonderful safe and peaceful holiday with family and friends

God please protect those who protect us 24/7 for they are our Heroes that allow us to sleep
night after night
