Defender Of The Year

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I read a Steward
at the Stade de France
foiled the attack of one
who sought to enter
just to claim more lives

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 … and make us fear …

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 … communing to enjoy
the game we cherish.
With the Bystanders,
the Perished,

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 … my Defender Of The Year.



By reports, one bystander perished directly as a result of this attacker, but all bystanders who perished this tragic evening, and their families and friends, and all those who acted selflessly to protect lives are my Defenders of the Year, for they have suffered sacrifice for our lives and our liberty.
