Veteran’s Day 2010

American Anthem – Norah Jones

All we’ve been given
by those who came before;
The dream of a nation
where freedom would endure.
The work and prayers of centuries
have brought us to this day.

What shall be our legacy?
What will our children say?
Let them say of me
I was one who believed
in sharing the blessings I received.

Let me know in my heart
when my days are through,
America…
America…
I gave my best to you.”

For those who think
they have nothing to share;
who fear in their hearts
there is no hero there;
know each quiet act of dignity
is that which fortifies,
the soul of a nation
that never ever dies.

Let them say of me
I was one who believed
in sharing the blessings I received.
Let me know in my heart
when my days are through,
America…
America…
I gave my best to you.

 

To my father, who flew missions over Germany in a B-17; who was shot down, captured, and survived a year in a German prison camp…

To all those who served in Korea and Vietnam…

To all those who served — who still serve — in Iraq and Afghanistan…

and the families who wait, and hope, and pray for a safe return…

Thank you!

America…

America…

these are the best of you.
