This is for parents everywhere;
Sisters, brothers and wives;
Our Military are very special people
We owe them all OUR lives.
I have four children of my own
Who are healthy, strong and free.
And of those four, I have one son
Whom God has entrusted to me.
My son is witty, handsome and brave;
Loving all who bless his way.
Will he be one to defend Freedom's call?
Will he have to fight one day?
My prayer of course is for peace world-wide.
For oppression to miraculously end.
But when men like Bin Laden and Hussein exist,
Our children will be called to defend.
These beautiful people know right from wrong.
They understand there's a price to be free
And that precious lives will be torn and lost.
Could you please explain it to me?
