what do heroes do?
through disasters large and small,
whether real or false alarm,
they will answer every call,
they strive to keep us from harm...
that's what heroes do.
what do heroes do?
no matter the time of day,
no matter the time of night,
overworked and underpaid,
they will not give up the fight...
that's what heroes do.
what do heroes do?
police protects us from crime,
firemen put out the flames,
medics try to buy more time,
our safety they will attain...
that's what heroes do.
what do heroes do?
at times they face great danger,
at times they're risking their lives,
helping loved ones and strangers,
work to make sure they survive...
that's what heroes do.
what do heroes do?
they entered falling towers,
true heroism was shown,
they tried to thwart death's powers
they lost many of their own...
that's what heroes do.

that's what heroes do.

to all of the heroes in the police force,
firefighters, ems and medical teams,
search and rescue, dog teams and
their handlers, and ordinary volunteers:
THANK YOU!!! we love you, and you
ARE heroes.
