Spirit 105.9 Runs Radio Advertisement With Savio and Holy Family Students to Commemorate Veteran’s D

Today on Veteran’s Day, we take a moment to thank and pray for all those who have given their lives, away from their families, to defend our freedoms. We are grateful and thank our Lord for the gift of all the men and women that have served and are continuing to serve our country. 

Spirit 105.9 is running a radio advertisement today to commemorate Veteran’s Day. The ad highlights Savio and Holy Family students, through the partnership of the Diocese of Austin.  

The Veteran’s day poem in the ad is written by Cheryl Dyson: 

On Veteran’s Day we honor all, 
Who answered to a service call. 
Soldiers young, and soldiers old, 
Fought for freedom, brave and bold. 
Some have lived, while others died,
And all of them deserved our pride. 
We’re proud of all the soldiers who, 
Kept thinking of red, white and blue. 
They fought for us and all our rights,
They fought through many days and nights. 
And though we may not know each name, 
We thank ALL veteran’s just the same. 

Please listen to the ad on YouTube from Spirit 105.9. We thank the Savio Filmworks Team for editing photos of Holy Family and St. Dominic Savio Students with the Poem.
