Freedom won
sacrifices made
blood poured out.

Yet we trash the land
with selfishness and ingratitude
in the form of litter,
and toxic waste.

Forgive us,
dear forefathers,
our reckless disregard
of all you considered worthy
of sacrifice.

Forgive us,
dear Father God,
our careless disrespect
of all You considered worthy
of creating.
