From the Comments: Keiran

The storied Greatest Generation
Who battled dark oppression and foul tyranny
Now contend with cancer operations
Glaucoma, arthritis, asthma, and other malady.

As once they walked with heads held high
As all the people cheered their courage and unmatched humility
So now they are stooped by age, and die
Quiet are the people; our heroes lost in anonymity.

But when for a moment, a moment’s pause we find
Amid the chaos of life’s inconvenience
Perhaps we might turn our grateful hearts and minds
To those who offered their whole selves in liberty’s defense
And for them hold a moment’s reverence.

This is quite good, especially considering the 100 word restriction. Great work!
