A True Hero


I have been moved by someone this season
Shedding tears at her amazing act
One teacher that showed us bravery
And honor when most would have cracked
She put her life on the line for her kids
How many of us would have done the same
In the face of pure, mortal danger
She pushed away her fear and became
A true hero in every sense of the word
One that this world should never forget
So to Vicki Soto, her family, and friends
I wish we could repay this overhwhelming debt
Thank you for inspiring us to be stronger
For shielding those children with your wings of love
I pray that you are surrounded by other angels
And continue to watch over us from heaven above.
