I Stand Before You by Roger Jaco Robicheau

Associated Student Government community relations committee member Mike Morgan (right) brought up the idea of garage sale where off campus students could sell goods before the school year ends. About 20 students attended the garage sale on Sunday.

I Stand Before You
I stand before you all today
But not one eye can see my way
My time arrived, to leave this earth
A fact so planned, to every birth
It happened where I had to go
My torch for life was so aglow
I transferred while in uniform
Protecting freedom, through a storm
Should I resent I died for you
Not on my life, red white and blue
Please help my family through each day
Tell all my friends, try not to stray
And of the country I did love
Do think of me, through God above
Your memories, brought forth this day
Send love to us, who could not stay
