Our sons and daughters, pride of our nations, have served, fought and died so that we may be free. How truly immortal are those who give their lives for liberty. Blessed are they whose blood is shed for the welfare of their followers. Grant them, heavenly father, eternal peace, embrace them and receive into thy kingdom. Let the living not forget the price they paid for freedom. Blessed are those who mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are those who fought and died for they shall be remembered.
