Tears on a Tuesday

Thank you, thank you, thank you...

I loved that video, too! How easy it is to forget all those who fight for us.

Okay, I'm not even American and that just ripped my heart out. I'll tell you why. I know I have my freedom over here in my cozy comfy Canada because of the soldiers from American. Not to diminish the work our soldiers do in any way...because I think on some level that when you are a soldier, borders come down and a brotherhood begins. I know I can sit here and blog to my hearts content because of the freedom these soldiers gave up so I can have mine. So with my heart hanging out, I say, thankyou, I am proud of all our soldiers Canadian and American and someday, in heaven, I'll be able to see who actually laid down their life so I can vote, drink overpriced water out of a bottle, educate my children how I think it should be done and on and on. And still, freedom is a responsiblity, not a right. Its really a gift. And just because I have freedom of speech dosn't mean I can just fling words around a hurt people with them. So thanks for posting this..as hard as it is to really think about, its important that we do. I am very proud of all the soldiers who fight for freedom all over the world. I didn't mean to preach on your blog...that just kinda came out.
