    A hero has fallen. It is time for us to mourn their passing, secure in the
    knowledge that their service and sacrifice shall not be forgotten. We mourn
    with their family and friends, knowing that they will find peace in the arms
    of the Lord.
    Hero, your watch is done, you can stand down now. We now have the watch.


    POW-MIA's you are not forgotten.

    They were not just soldiers: they were someone’s parents.
    They were not just soldiers: they were someone’s friends.
    They were not just soldiers: they were our soldiers.
    They were not just soldiers: they were someone’s children.
    They were not just soldiers: they were someone’s love.
    My wife and I offer our sincere thanks and prayers for these true American heroes. Their service and sacrifices will not be forgotten. Their valor did not go unnoticed. We are forever grateful for their service to our country. May they never be forgotten, and may God grant them eternal peace.
    We fought a revolution. We won the revolution. We wrote the Constitution.
    The constitution doesn’t grant power, it keeps the government off our backs.

    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.
