While it is sad that any human life is lost, some illicit a little less sorrow than others. May the war on Terrorism be able to be laid to rest. And may the loss of soldiers fighting for freedom come to an end. I want to extend my gratitude to the soldiers, of all countries involved in the war, who have paid most dearly, in order to provide me and my family to live in this most wonderful country.
I remember being awake early one morning with my 2yo son, just days before his 3rd birthday, living in a travel trailer waiting for the construction of my new house to be complete. As trailer trash as one could be, I had my big satellite on the roof of the trailer, so I could still be connected to the world on my little 12 inch screen tv. I had no idea when I turned on the tv that morning, that the date of that day would forever be the title of a world wide historical event. Of course that date is 9-11. The day many US civilians and servicemen/women died at the hands of Osama Bin Laden. I sat there in disbelief as the events unfolded right before my eyes, and there I sat, in that tiny trailer, crying, grateful it was not me, and saddened for those who could not say the same.
I cannot express in words, through my tears of joy and sorrow, my fear as to what may happen in response to his demise, but am hopeful that maybe this 10yr war may come to an end, and peace and liberty be restored to our mother earth.
May today be known as 5-1
Savvy On Soldiers
May you find Peace in your hearts
