Remembering A Hero

While a proud, grateful
family and a nation
has said goodbye
to you, Michael Murphy,
your selfless heroics
above and beyond the call of duty
will always be remembered and honored,
as nothing greater can be done
for one's country and fellow citizens
than making the ultimate sacrifice
to save your fellow troops.

Rest well with your
Medal of Honor brothers
in the Divine Light above,
knowing America's love
will always shine
brightly for you too.
