Faces Of Courage
I saw him on the evening news, the soldier in his hospital bed
Whom everyone thought unconscious and unable to move his head.
But Corporal Hargis was awake…in fact he was astute
For when he was given his Purple Heart he found the strength to salute.
Thank you Corporal Hargis for your courage helps keep the rest of us free.
But your story got me to thinking about all the faces of courage I see.
