Veterans Day Prayer and Meditation ~ by Susan Kramer

You gave for peace with courage
That families may be free
So children could grow strong
And safe they’d ever be.

In giving for the sake of peace
You may have suffered loss
Your body may still show its wounds
From taking up the cause.

May remembrance of your time away
Your sacrifice for peace
Spur us on to strive more strongly
For freedom, that there’ll be release.

From causes that sent some away
To fight that we may freely live
With gratefulness we thank you, veterans,
For all you gave and give!

Thank you to all who have served and are serving.
