My prayers are with the families of the 31 soldiers that gave their lives yesterday in Afghanistan. I can't begin to imagine the horror their families must be suffering, but my heart can understand their pain. Tonight, I will lay my head on my pillow and be thankful that I have the freedom to do this in my own home, because of them and I will give thanks that I had the freedom to give thanks whenever, and however I choose....
But in the morning, the sun will rise, and it will be a new day, but... sadly, not yet a new president. So I will pray that Obama doesn't take these freedoms from us like he took away our bill of rights. Finally, I will give thanks to our soldiers for the freedom to pray that God blesses us with a new president soon that will give more to the people of this country than he takes away.
Amazing... isn't it ..?? This man we call our president, ...every soldier's commander in chief... he has the lives of all our soldiers in his hands, and yet, he has never had the honor to ever walk in their shoes or dawn the most beautiful uniform this world has ever seen. Our president was never a soldier. I remember when our country had enough pride to stand strong with our morals to NEVER let anyone in the presidency that has not served our country.
I never wanted to hear myself say this, or even think this, but I'm glad my time as a solder is behind me. It breaks my heart to say this, because I miss being a soldier every day of my life, but I could not serve my country under a commander that has no clue what it means to be a soldier. How can he send our soldiers in to fight when he has no respect for all those things they are fighting for?
I hope tomorrow is a better day for all of us, and I hope the family members of our fallen soldiers can find piece and comfort in knowing that there are so many of us that honor and thank them for their sacrifice.
Sweet dreams IBSkin, and to our lost soldiers... may you rest in piece in the arms of God. You will never be forgotten.
