Remembering Our Heroes
by Cheval John
People hear this advice in many forms, “Be thankful for what you have,” even if things are not going your way.
The advice rings true because of the sacrifice that soldiers make on a daily basis to preserve our freedom.
Have you ever thought of what would happen if they decided, “I am not going to serve in the army, navy, marines, etc. but I am going to pursue what I want to be happy.
Then we would not have the freedom to do what we take for granted, like choosing what to watch, were to go to school, were to worship, etc.
They made up their minds to serve our country.
Some were assigned in war zones to make sure that no threat would come on the shores of the United States.
But, some would not return to see their love ones as they pay the ultimate price to preserve our freedoms.
And for those who were wounded, they would have to go through rehabilitation in order to get back to health.
They even go through therapy because they have recurring nightmares of the battles that they went through and have to live with for the rest of their lives.
So, on this memorial day and frankly, everyday, lets remember those who gave their lives for our freedom and to thank those who are currently serving in the arm forces.
That is what we can truly be thankful for.
Here is a video from God Divine of a soldier receiving a warm welcome from her golden retriever after a tour of duty from Afghanistan on this link: http://www.godvine.com/Mommy-and-Doggy-Reunite-After-a-Year-Apart-343.html
