I grew up with stories
That my elders shared
Of our family’s souls
Passed down through the years

From the old country
And the starving they fed
To working all day
The making of bread

To serving our country
With wounds they received
Foundation of faith
In Christ they believed

Put other soul’s first
Do your work with pride
Share a humble joy
For Christ’s by our side

Committed to purpose
Through toils and strife
Of their sacrifice
For our better life

One thought on “Legacy”

  1. So many of those who have gone before us, for all their weaknesses and brokenness, acted heroically to make a better life for us who have followed. It is only right we should honor them.
