In Honor of You

For all of you who pushed your body, mind and spirit to the limit…

Than You.

For all of you who left your friends and family behind for months or even years…

You humble me.

For all the birthdays, anniversaries, Christmases, and so much more you’ve sacrificed…

I remember you.

For all of you who’ve lost friends, brothers, limbs  and more…

My prayers are with you.

For all the husbands, wives, and children that will never hold their loved one again because they laid down their life…

There are no words, for ‘I’m sorry for your loss’ is simply not enough.

To every man and woman who has sacrificed their time, their freedom, their bodies, their very lives for this country, for my freedom, and so that me and my family can lay our heads down safely each night, and for your families…

This is in honor of you.

We as individuals and as a nation owe you a debt that can never truly be repaid.
