A tribute for all who dared
"They Dared To Try" by jaybird1
We all play at this game of life.
We can not miss an inning.
But deep within we all must know,
the challenge lies in winning.

Did Lindbergh span the ocean blue
with failure on his mind,
or bravely dare to dream he could
and win for all of mankind?

Do not the Lincoln's, King's and Frost's
with visions bold and tall,
dare chase their dreams and thus enlarge
many vistas for us all?

Then hail to them, we sing their praise,
for a noble job, well done.
They won our hearts, they dared to try
and earned their place in the sun.
