Our country is in turmoil and as kids we sometimes worry when we watch the news with our parents and see all that is going on around us. We can be so thankful to our older brothers and sister, cousins, aunts and uncles and family friends that serve in the military to protect us and our country.
Every Thanksgiving I think about the soldiers stationed across the seas and others prepared to fight for us should they be called to do so. I feel sorry for them spending their Thanksgiving in a submarine or battleship, in aircraft or trenches behind enemy lines. I think about the lonely soldier and military sniper who never see friendly people near them and are unable to talk for if they did they may get shot. I am sorry you can’t spend time with your family.
This Thanksgiving and everyday, each of us needs to think of these men and women and when we see them give them a thank you and a hug for all that they do for us.
OoRah to all of you for your service to the country.
