Reflecting on Heroes

Reflecting on Heroes
by, Melissa R. Mendelson
Time to reflect on their sacrifice. 
The newspaper headline 
is a bullet penetrating deep darkness of reality 
that war is not gone, 
and it’s not forgotten. 
We still rage battles, 
battles that will forever 
define heroes, 
but the villains live on. 
And they refuse to die, 
so we can’t give up. 
We can’t hope for a better tomorrow 
without laying our lives on the line, 
and they will not be forgotten. 
Our hearts and soul are their echo, 
their sacrifice. 
We are who they are fighting for. 
This world goes on 
because of them. 
We remember the heroes that gave us hope, 
and maybe, one day, 
because of them, 
war will be gone 
and finally forgotten.
