Thank God I’ve had the last two-and-a-half years to meet and appreciate the men and women who sacrifice their lives for our country.
Every time I hear a news report about another Fort Riley soldier killed, I cringe, and hope not to recognize the name. It’s a pretty selfish process.
While the rest of us take a day off to play in the sun, thousands of families are remembering their fallen sons and daughters, husbands and wives, fathers and mothers, struggling to hold back thoughts of what could’ve come from a life cut short.
We owe our soldiers a thought, a thanks, a prayer, for what they’ve seen, experienced and died for. Whatever you think about the war, we have some true heroes in this country. They go over there and die for us, while we continue to live our lives as we always have.
God bless them and bring them home safely.
