Worth Dying For
A Tribute to Veterans World-Wide
Well-being of our children’s life,
Our freedom to decide,
Right to believe in what we will,
The truths we hold inside.
Here are some things that will abide.
Death is not the end,
Your power lies in choice.
Inside the meaning of your life find
New strength within your voice
Gives glory to your dying.
Fight bravely for your cause—
Our faith in all that matters,
Redeem the future.
This weeks prompt was inspired by a book title on the NYT’s Best Seller list: Lee Child‘s “Worth Dying For.” I haven’t read this, but have read a couple of his fast-paced suspense/thrillers. They are entertaining page-turners if you enjoy the genre. The title tied in with this weeks remembrance of Veterans in many countries.
