The Brave

the brave inspire mankind to greatness

the price they have paid
  so the sinners stop killing the saints
  so children can live to adulthood
  so love and art and reason can survive annihilation
is a price humanity ought never have to pay
but we must
so here's to our heroes
who fight for peace justice liberty sanity
mostly unsung
until long after the victory has been won
and they have moved on to new battles
