On a day that came from a struggle
There is no better example of courage
To value freedom above all else
When actions emphasize our knowledge.
When you can no longer go along
With the actions forced by another
Taking matters into your own hands
Maybe even brother against brother.
Only history can judge right or wrong
Passion will always win out at the time
There will always be those that look back
And decide if it was just or just a crime.
Grateful we are to have the freedoms we enjoy
Many put down their lives to give us this way
From those who fought hundreds of years ago
To those that still stand proud to this day.
