I have never known the anguish of having a loved one far away fighting for my freedom. I have never known the fear and silence between letters and calls. I have never known the prayers that a Mother, a Father, Wife, Sister, Brothers must pray when their loved one has been called into duty. But, I do know the thankfulness I feel when I think of the brave men and women who have given their very last breath to save what we take for granted...freedom. I know the thankfulness I feel when my children can play freely in a park without fear and they can be taught differing world views without retribution. That is because of the ones who gave it all. Thank you will never be enough.
