Imagine all the things you take for granted swept away,
And all you thought you had was gone.
Imagine times have changed, you face an unprotected day
But that’s not so, please take the time
And Say Thank You to a Veteran
Reach out and shake their hand
And know that you can sleep at night
They fought to save our land.
Say Thank You to a Veteran
For how they served us all
We know that freedom has a price
And they’re the special ones that took the call.
Remember holidays with family members by your side
And all the love you shared with them.
Remember wondering if those who served did not decide
To sacrifice for everyone
Now we see so many need our help, it’s a chance to serve them now
Understanding that they fought for us, we must fight for them somehow.
All together we can make a change,
We can sacrifice for them, pay the price for them, let our love for them shine.
