Soldier's Plea

We were shaped and fashioned as true saviors of peace, Endorsed to spread honor and knock the enemy off his feet, So, I raised my right hand, before God and before man, To defend our constitution on water or on land, To spread democracy's gift of love, A trowel craftsman's tool was used from above, So, we need your support and your prayers, Sometimes I wonder if anyone even cares, When we fight all day and all night, Can our Democrats and our Republicans do what is right? To put on this uniform takes a very courageous person of a special breed, For we fight not just for our country, but, for other nations that are in need, Even to this very day my friend, I can not forget, When those mad men, flew our planes from those Airports, And into those buildings with no remorse, So, United we shall stand or divided we shall fall, My Soldier's plea is that this great country pulls together, And may God help us all, Land of the liberty and home of the brave, Distinguished folks like our Generals and our Admirals, Judges and Pastors, Mothers and Fathers, Little boys and little girls who represent our country, From all over this world, I need you to take a stand with me, From the north to the south, And from the east coast to the west coast, Let us all boldly proclaim my Soldier's plea
