I Am Thankful For...Our Military

Hey all,

Here is my thankful thought for the day...

I can't imagine what our lives would be like now without the men and women who fought to free America over 200 years ago. More tea than coffee? A queen instead of a president? No...much more than that. We fought for ideals and beliefs that many of us still hold dear today.

Each time one of our men or women take the oath, they are in fact, standing up for you and I. Not just an ethereal USA and some white haired man in a funny suit, but us. Each person in this country. Whether you care or not...they do. They are putting their lives on the line for us.

So...I'm thankful for each and every one of them. The guys on the front lines dodging bullets and seeing horrific sights, the gal in the office who is making sure those soldiers get the ammo, food and medical supplies they need, and the people back in the states who keep things safe on the home front. Each of you is important...each of you is special...each of you is necessary.

It matters not where you are when you read this. You can be in Canada, Singapore, or England. You can be fighting the war in Iraq, or snuggled up with your honey in Jamaica. We all know what I'm talking about. America celebrates our vets today...but we know it extends to all peoples...because we all have fought for our freedom in some way.
And the men and women who have done so, should be honored, respected and thanked.

God Bless You all!
