The Sacrifice of our Soldiers and Their families
PioneerGirl's picture

It is so easy to forget the soldiers who have sacrificed their lives for our freedoms.  Since the dawn of time there has been wars and people have died and the soldiers go into war for the most part knowing that they may have to sacrifice their lives, knowing that every moment could be their last on earth.  They leave their families knowing that they might not return home.   Their families watch with tear filled eyes  not knowing if that is the last time they will see their loved one.  And when a soldier dies it is their families that are left behind to pick up the pieces and go on with life.  Yes for awhile  we may assert how he or she was a hero and so on, but then when all that is said and done  we go on with our lives as if nothing has happened, but what of the family of that soldier that died?  They still have to go on with their life knowing that there loved one is gone never to return, knowing that there kids will never again see there mother or father (perhaps they never even knew them).  Kids old of enough to know  have to deal with the knowledge that mom or dad is gone forever.  There only comfort is that they died a hero.

Let us not forget those that have sacrificed their lives for our freedoms.  May they never be forgotten.  Let us not forget the families they leave behind.  May the G-d watch over and protect them.  When we exercise our freedoms let us remember those that died that we may have them.  Let us not be non-challant about our freedoms.  Remember many people have died and many more will that we may have them.  Let us be ever thankful.
