Freedom’s Call (2:42)
Heroes whisper, “We gave freedom to you. But what we did wasn’t anything new. We’re just ordinary people, like you, my friend; but when we were needed, we were there to the end. We gave our hearts, we gave our all. Without our strength it would fall. ‘Cuz every generation must march to freedom’s call…Or we’ll have no freedom at all.
“Now this freedom passes on to you. Will you stand for the red, white and blue? Some have fought with a sword, some defend with a pen. But the fight for freedom never ends. Can you give your heart? Can you give your all? Without your strength it will fall. ‘Cuz every generation must march to freedom’s call…or we’ll have no freedom at all.”
To these heroes I reply: “I’m no one special, but my voice counts. Joining with others we will surmount. With a quiet conviction within my heart, I might find a way to do my part: I will give my heart, I will give my all. Without my strength it might fall. ‘Cuz every generation must march to freedom’s call…
Or we’ll have no freedom at all. Yes, in my generation I’ll march to freedom’s call…I won’t let our freedom fall.”

The Story Behind the Song: Freedom’s Call (Dedicated to Veterans’ & Families)
They say that heroes are ordinary people who do extraordinary things. Down through the generations, “some have fought with a sword, some defend with a pen, but the fight for freedom never ends.” Each generation needs its own heroes who are willing to ensure freedom. This song is included on this CD for the children of fallen heroes. Lives are priceless; the gift of freedom is also priceless. Its cost should never be taken for granted.
