In Remembrance

Despite what goes on in the news, back and forth, this person's opinion and that person's opinion, I would like to say to those in the military, as well as their families, past and present, that there are those of us that remember and care.
We care about the fact that you have sacrificed so much to defend us so that we could be free.
Despite whatever garbage goes on in politics, whether or not there are really ulterior motives for this war or that, whether or not we should be fighting or should not, the fact is that these men and women in the military, along with their families, are sacrificing everything for us while those of us back here choose to intellectualize the debate or kick back and watch TV.
The simple fact is that they are out there,
we are not.
The families are waiting anxiously, or mourning in the deepest sorrow that we cannot know unless we have also had the misfortune of that experience.
My heart goes out to the parents who have lost their children,
the men and women who have lost their spouses,
the children who have lost their parents,
the siblings who have lost their brother or sister,
all those who have lost that person they so love.
Blessings to you.
I know it is not enough to say thank you, but thank you.
Thank you all for your sacrifice.
To those men and women that are back home, may your future be bright.
To those still out there, may you safely come back home.
God Bless you always.
