I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Blog Politics Remember History

History is but people,
And our country’s had its share,
Who did their part to make us great,
So let me take you there.
The father of our country,
George Washington of long ago,
Led our land to freedom,
In spite of famine and snow.
There was Thomas Jefferson,
Who helped pen those special words,
Of freedom in the Declaration of Independence,
The entire nation heard.
Don’t forget tall Abe Lincoln,
President who freed the slaves,
Though he lost his own life,
The United States he saved.
Speak of Clara Barton
Who brought the Red Cross to our shores,
Or Harriet Tubman’s rescue of her people,
And so many, many more.
Yes, I shall proudly stand,
With those who did their best,
To bring us freedom with honor,
And ever stood the test.
For those who bravely went before us,
For all they did for you and me.
Let us honor them with gratitude
Doing our part to ensure
That America’s people remain forever free
