This poem by Mathew Moore, a Grade 8 Earl Marriott Secondary student, was submitted by his father:
Our heroes have fallen, and so have our spirits.
We dare dread at our loss, as it is a great one, but as the sun rises, we see a new chance.
Our heroes in blue stride with a new hope. As they have not loss, they have all but fallen. You see, it will be, all but forgotten.
With our city on their back. Their stride so true. We can’t help, but feel, all but blue.
Mathew Moore, Surrey
