While we fight on the definition of a patriot,

They set examples of one.

While we burn buses and govt property for reservations,

They make sure we dont have to worry about our safety while doing so.

While we whatsapp our friends and family,

They wait for that one telephone call that might be their last.

While we make plans for the weekends,

They make sure we are there to see that weekend.

While we smile and laugh and live,

They make sure we have reasons to do so.

While we love and are loved by our families,

There is somewhere that one family that misses their child.
