Thanks to our heroes,

Some people have labeled singers, actors, and politicians as heroes in their occupation because they personify American values. My heroes are the men and women that have served in our armed forces since the start of our nation's history. These generations of heroes have witnessed their friends and relatives killed or wounded. Many show no outward signs but still carry the emotional scars of battle. Supporting our heroes are their families. They are the ones who write the letters, make the telephone calls, send care packages, and continue to be supportive even in the darkest of days.

My heroes, through their sacrifice, have made it possible for us to enjoy the freedoms that we have today. We need to take advantage of these freedoms; especially freedom of speech, the right to vote, bear arms, and worship as we choose, and not take them for granted. For example, if we agree or disagree with someone or something, we need to speak up and let our voices be heard and at the ballot box.

As July 4th and other holidays, is around the corner, let us do the following:

1) Thanks – let us thanks all those who have served in our armed forces for keeping us safe at home.

2) Time – take the time to pray for their safety.

3) Tradition – make it a family tradition that you will support them through various programs or charitable events.

To all the heroes, thank you and may God Bless you, your family, and the great U.S.A.
