I found a quote from George Orwell that really struck a chord with me.
“People sleep peacably in their beds at night only because
rough men stand readyto do violence on their behalf.”…..George Orwell
That quote hit me because I never want to forget those brave men and women who have given their lives for freedom and their country. A large part of being patriotic is remembering those who have gone before us and fought for the freedoms that we enjoy.
I speak as an American, but whatever country you live in there are heroes that have protected that country in the past. You may be related to them. You may be them. To all of you around the world who have served or are serving, no matter the country, I salute you.
I was not able to be in the military and as such I am one of those who sleeps peaceably. I do however, know and respect the sacrifice of those who serve me. I have always been and will forever be a staunch supporter of our troops.
I do not believe there will ever be complete peace in the world no matter what the songs may wish for. Without people willing to protect what we have, we will lose it to those who want to take it.
I always hope for peace that keeps our people at home but I am grateful that they are ready to go at a moments notice.
