Our Heroes Past, Present and Future!

Heroes of the past,
We salute you
Our death you died
All in the name of service.
Some of your deaths could have been avoided
But for our foolishness
Yet you decided to sacrifice your lives.

Heroes of the present
We hail thee
Using yourselves as shield for us
Especially in this period
We fail you sometimes
But you never turn your back on us.

Heroes of the future
We await you
We hope to do better for you
So that you don’t have to die
Especially meaningless wars
Wars born out of malice and power plays.

Let us appreciate our fallen Nigerian Army and do better for those alive. Instead of placing wreaths on their graves(for the ones lucky to be buried) when they are dead. Let us help them avoid unnecessary wars while alive. Wars born out of malice and power plays.
