Here’s to the Heroes

On February 1, I performed the song “Here’s to the Heroes” for the Harvest Christian Academy Faculty Recital. I chose this song because my brother is in the Marine Corps, so I’ve been feeling especially patriotic these last two years. In addition, several men from my church have been deployed/are currently deployed to the Horn of Africa. I wanted to honor those who are serving in our armed forces and pay special tribute to the soldiers from Guam who died for our country.

Here’s to the heroes
Those few who dare
Heading for glory
Living a prayer

Here’s to the heroes
Who change our lives
Thanks to the heroes
Freedom survives

Here’s to the heroes
Who never rest
They are the chosen
We are the blessed

Here’s to the heroes
Who aim so high
Here’s to the heroes
Who do or die

Mia monacha prosefchi (A single prayer)
Pera os pera alithini (Truthful throughout)
Gia panta mesa stin kardia mou (Forever in my heart)

Here’s to the heroes
Who aim so high
Here’s to the heroes
Who do or die

As I sang, a PowerPoint presentation played in the background. I collected pictures of Ryan, the son-in-law of one of the faculty ladies, my brother, and several members of HBC who are/were deployed to Africa. The last few pictures are of Guam’s fallen soldiers since the beginning of the war on terrorism.
