Here's a poem my 14 year old sister wrote for her class. It's about Soldier Josh Dingler, 19, whom went to Hiram High School and was killed in Iraq recently. She was hand-picked to read this poem to the entire school...

♥In loving memory♥

An Unforgotten Loss



A man of complexity

His strength he would prove.

His commitment, admired

By family and crew.



The path he had chosen

Not one of contentment.

Serves his country with honor,

Not a seed of resentment.



He carries his burden

With conviction and truth.

Leaving behind all

The innocence of youth.



The respect of his men

Has been rightfully earned.

With hard work on his mind,

And the lessons he’s learned.



His family, proud

Of the man he has become,

Await his return

When his service is done.



His sacrifice is greater

Than others could know.

While he fights for our freedom

Our support will grow.



Pictures and letters

That are wrinkled and torn,

Reminders to him of

All he’s fighting for.



The price he has paid

Was his choice alone.

He loved God and his country,

His family and home.



You may not know him quite well,

But he’s like many others

Whose story I tell.



Each one is important

As those who procedded

If we all stand behind them,

They can’t all be defeated.
