For Charlie

I am free today because brave men and women have sacrificed their lives.
I am free today because of courage.


I am free today because husbands and wives have missed one another.
I am free today because of unselfishness.


I am free today because people have fought and died for the right to worship without fear.
I am free today because of conviction.


I am free today because someone wanted to ease the suffering of others.
I am free today because of compassion.


I am free today because you have seen fit to right an injustice and fight tyranny.
I am free today because of honor.


At the sound of the trumpet, you ride in chariots of freedom.
You are not afraid to make a stand and risk your lives.


I am free today because of you.
