Finding the Fourth by Amy Carothers

Looking into the mirror I see a past reflecting me
Those who’ve given their lives to allow us to be free
The families at home worrying about their loved ones overseas
The gratefulness I feel as the flag proclaims our nationality

We may not all agree with the politics sending our soldiers into war
but think of those who have died to allow our dreams to soar
