Remember the days

Submitted by Rhiannon Bellerose, age 12, in the under 12 category

As you hear the trumpet roar

As you stand in silence

Remember the days

Remember the days where the loud fire of the

gun wounded innocent and lost

Lost in waves of war and terror

Drowning in screams and crys

Remember the brave souls who suffered and died

for a war they did not start

They stood much like you in silence

In reverence

They lost partners and friends

They have seen things that haunt them in the

dead of night

So as you stand in silence as you listen to the

thundering trumpet

Remember the days

Although they may be sad and dark heavy with


They determined the courage and strength of our proud nation
