Another personal letter to our U.S. Soldiers...
Age Group: Adult
This letter is just to let you know, that I care..and that a LOT of others whom you have not yet met or may someday meet...really care about YOU...and trust me..
people DO!!! Don't forget that!!!
I really do like what you do for the country and for all of us on youtube! LOL!!
Cheers to those that make us laugh!
Happiness and love to those who serve for all of
us who are NOT there!!
Peace to the families that have seen much grief, sadness,
heartache, and have lost ones that they loved very much!
I feel for you, I honestly do...it is hard to read about what
your families go thru..and it is also hard to read about
what some of you, who have served have and are right now
I really wanted you to know that I like you, and admire the work
that you all do...I know that I will never understand the amount
of time, and the pressure that you may all be actually under
and a whole lot of other things as well, but, I would like to
give you a huge warm hug..to let you know, that I would
like to be a friend..if that's okay with you.
You are a welcome site, for many people,
you are loved and missed by not just family and
friends, neighbors, and other soldiers out in this world,
but, a LOT of the folks in the world, that do not even
know your name!!
Children write about you, like when you visit schools,
and or just like to write to you, and learn about
all the interesting things that you have done, or gone thru.
Adults are the same too.
They like to know just WHO they have out there, who
does the work so that they can have a peace of mind...
They wanna know who you all are....that you represent
our country, that you stand for peace...and support!
That you care.
There are a LOT of other things that people look for...
but, I just named basics...but, don't think that we,
Americans Don't Give A Da**!!
Nothing could be farther than the truth! I know a LOT of older
service men that I have spoken to, that love you a LOT!!
They wish more than anything that they were back in the game!!
They speak highly of what they did, when they served. They
times before yours...when they were doing what they needed
to help and serve others.
Some share, some write, some speak, and some remember...
Just know, that you are NOT in the past...and that you
did and are doing some great, great things...and that
YES!! YOU MATTER!!!
Maybe you are at home, recuperting from war wounds..but,
I won't forget you....I won't leave you in the dust...
and neither will anybody else!
Despite what you might already be thinking...
There are a LOT of us who do not fight, that think
great thoughts about all of you out there..and
YES! YOU DO MATTER!! Even if you have ceased fighting
and you are resting, or relaxing, or your life has changed drastically
We care about you...you need to stay around...we don't
want to lose YOU!!
(I say this, because there are some soldiers that I have
heard or read about that are going thru some hard painful times..) .
the war has changed you...and you seem at times indifferent, and or
saddened...and or blue..and sometimes life seems too bleak to go on..
Whatever you do...remember, there are people who want you to
keep on going..and if we could we would reach out and hold you tight!!!
You DO matter..YOU are Important....I care..and others care ..even if
I do not know you, nor, know you yet!!!
The key is to believe and to keep right on
goin' and just to know that we are out here, all around...
and that we are not without heart...and not without feelings
