Twenty One Steps

Twenty One Steps

div

Arlington where our unknown soldier
lies. The place to honor those who
gave their lives. Those that died
that generations be free. May we
remember them through eternity

div

This Unknown Soldier guarded day
andnight by the choice of a few and
with all their might to show mankind
their respect and dignity to those
who defended our lives and liberty

Twenty one steps, he takes twenty
one steps. Eyes locked in honor for
the soldier he guards and twenty one
seconds before he turns to honor
the soldiers who never returned

div

Twenty one steps until the end of
time for our lost soldiers we
cannot find. They gave their lives
for you and me. The price paid
to preserve our dignity with all
their might to show mankind.

So let's take twenty one steps, just
twenty one steps. Lock our eyes in
honor for our soldiers that died and
think for twenty one seconds about
their sacrifice to preserve our
freedom and our children's lives.
