Courage Poem

This poem is dedicated to all the heroes in our lives. My husband is a soldier in the US Army, He's been deployed all over the world from the US to Korea, to Iraq and Afghanistan. He is my hero. Heroes come from all walks, from both genders, from all religions, and backgrounds. Everyone, I think is someone's hero. Whose hero are you?

American Heroes

America has so many heroes.
Many, we know not their names,
They are policemen and firemen,
Soldiers and boxers.
Most, with no Hollywood fame.
Heroes come from all walks of life,
From every race, religion, and creed.
Helping citizens in trouble,
Assisting those in desperate need.
I have had many heroes
Throughout my entire life,
My parents, my siblings, my kids, even strangers
And a hero who's made me his wife.
How fortunate we are who love our country,
Giving unconditionally,
How fortunate I am to be an American
Whom someone's hero is me.
