Memorial Day Tribute

For the men and women who have paid the price to keep others safe. Who have made the ultimate sacrifice, either across the seas or here on home soil. To those who have survived war, only to come home and find they didnt belong and couldn’t fit in; so they stopped the pain the only way they knew how. To the young men that fought for freedom; either by choice or by law. To the women manning the hospitals, the machine shops, or left at home to carry the load of the household while worrying that he may never come back. To the police officers, firefighters, and others who have taken the bullets, inhaled the smoke, and been the target of people that were stupid, hateful, or lost. Thank you for the sacrifices you’ve made. Thank you for keeping the rest of us safe, and protecting our freedom. I know sometimes it seems like your lives were lost in vain- but you will not be forgotten. May God bless you, and this country that you died fighting for.
