FACES OF THE FALLEN
Thousands and thousands of hours are spent talking about the raid and death of Osama bin Laden.
The same holds true for the Casey Anthony trial.
While these are legitimate news stories, I get tired of hearing the same crap over and over again. Yes, I do know there is a remote control where I can change the channel or turn the television off and I use these buttons quite often.
I am dismayed by what we don't hear on the news.
How much time is given to report on the men and women in uniform who so bravely serve our great nation and who often give the ultimate sacrifice while they are doing this?
We may hear that a certain number are killed on a certain day. We don't hear much about the brave individuals.
I have found this site that gives us a daily update on the number of fatalities during these wars.
This site also has pictures of these brave men and women shown by the date of their death.
It is my hope and prayer that you all will take just a minute and visit this site and familiarize yourself with some of these heroes. This is the very least we can do.
We may not know many of them, but many of them didn't know us, but that didn't stop them from serving bravely to protect the freedoms and liberties that we all enjoy. The fact that they didn't know us didn't stop them from giving up their lives to protect those things.
Thank you for your time and consideration in doing this.
I love our military and pray God will bless and comfort their families. I pray that our heroes will rest in peace and I pray that God will keep those still serving safe from all harm.
God bless you, my dear Sodahead friends.
Hugs from Texas,
