I give a toast to every man, woman and child
Who gave of themselves, went the extra mile
To those who helped others in times of need
To those filled with charity, instead of greed
Hear, Hear, to those who took the Road Not Taken
Who stood firm in their beliefs, while they were forsaken.
To those who risked it all for their ethics and morals
And those who spread their love, should be crowned in laurels
A standing ovation to all the heroes that never were known
Whose caring devotion, helped someone's goodness be shown
To those who died for what they knew was right
To those who did not go gentle into that good night.
I place unto you my heartfelt graditude
Hoping that you will go on, keeping up your attitude
For it is you who make the world a better place
Blessings unto you may you receive many thanks.
