They Serve For Us

“For You”
All I saw was smoke and fire
I didn’t feel a thing
But suddenly I was rising higher
And I felt like I just made
The biggest mistake
When I thought about my unborn child
When I thought about my wife
And the answer rang out clear
From somewhere up above
No greater gift has man
Than to lay down his life for love.

And I wonder, would I give my life
Could I make that sacrifice
If it came down to it
Could I take the bullet, I would
Yes I would, for you.

Maybe you don’t understand
I don’t understand it all myself
But there’s a brother on my left and another on my right
And in his pocket just like mine
He’s got a photograph
And they’re waiting for him back home
It’s weighing on my mind
I’m not trying to be a hero
I don’t wanna die
But right now in this moment, you don’t think twice.

I wonder, would I give my life
Could I make that sacrifice
If it came down to it
Could I take the bullet, I would
Yes I would.

You don’t think about right
You don’t think about wrong
You just do what you gotta do, to defend your own
I’d do the same
For you
Yes I would.

I would give my life
I would make that sacrifice
Cause if it came down to it
Could I take a bullet
I would
Yes I would.

I’d do it for you
I’d do it for you
I take a bullet
Yes I would – Keith Urban, Monty Powell

It makes me so proud that we have a national holiday in which we honor those brave men and women who serve (or have served) our country. Here are photos of two of my favorite veterans…..

Thanks to all of those who served and are still serving this wonderful country.
