THEY TOO WERE YOUNG
C. B. Thompson
Off to war they went,
young men with hopes and dreams.
Today we remember them for what they did,
but let us not forget what they never had.
Look at their photographs and remember them well,
and imagine for just a moment what they might have been.
We live the future they never had,
so let us not forget: they too were young.
To all the young men and women who have served, I say “thank you”!
To all the young men and women who served and never came home, I say “you will not be forgotten.”
