You are a chip off the old block!

Your boy, your girl
All grown up now
Silver spoon, wooden spoon,
Tin spoon, no spoon
They are destined to stand up
Stand tall, sea to sea
They are our heroes

You are a chip off the old block
Just like your heroes of yesterday
Drums playing, flags blowing in the wind
Take a bow
Your spirit is strong
Though you're tired and weary

A hero was born today
Over yonder on a hill
Way down in the valley
From East to West, North to South
Continent to Continent
A hero was born today

A hero was born today
This morning, this afternoon, this evening
A hour ago, a minute ago, a second ago
Going to make a difference
Come fear, come hell, come rain, come sunshine
A hero among all other heroes, was born today

I'm not going to forget you
And I'm not going to let you forget it
Echo it loud!

"A Hero was Born Today"

Clearly a well constructed well thought out and powerfully executed write.

A wonderful surprise uplifting the spirit of America and Americans.
You are right Pier they are born not made and are created to stand tall to weather all the storms come what may. Keeping our country free because freedom is not free!

You could never imagine how special this write is to myself and family as well. Wish the troops overseas could see this they would stand even taller Pier causing their hearts to swell with pride. These are the types of words that help them all gives them the reason. If you ever get the chance to visit some of the websites you will see just how much more your heart will soar with their words of gratitude to all who care.

You are truly amazing with wise insights and a heart of gold. Let that wonderful heart of your SOAR, SOAR to the highest highs~JUST DON'T COME DOWN. LORD is holding you precious one so dear to HIM, you can surely tell. It is a priviledge to know of a young person such as yourself following closely to your blessings.

Happy New Year~here's wishing you all your wishes come true, continue on your golden path. Smile, now don't stop 'til you get there.

Such a wonderful and uplifting poem, Pier. Heroes are not made, they are born to the breed. Believing in each child that is born and encouraging them to make a difference in the world will make our world stronger. Teaching compasion and love will make our world safer. Very nice write!! Merry Christmas to you and those you love.
Take care,
