What They Did

St. Thomas Times-Journal - - REMEMBRANCE DAY - By: Ethan Reid

In World War I, the young sol­diers, sailors and pi­lots en­listed. Day af­ter day they lay awake, In the trenches that they built for our sake, Dur­ing the nights of this vi­cious war, They dreamed of the peo­ple they were fight­ing for, The sights of the fatllen they can­not un­see, A sight that should never have to be, The men­tal scars, they deal with one by one, As the only sounds heard, are the bangs of the guns, Right­fully though, we bury our fallen, In hopes their ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice will never be for­got­ten, We should al­ways be grate­ful for those who lent that help­ing hand, As they were the ones who fought, and died for our land What they did in World War I, our sol­diers still are do­ing to­day for us to­day. In Canada now, the sol­diers, sailors and pi­lots en­list to make peace stay.
