In my “You Just Never Know” blog, I dealt with my fascination with superheroes. Matter fact, I just saw the new X-Men and Spiderman movies, in which I thoroughly enjoyed both. Although I am fascinated with superhero stories, the real superheroes of our world don’t wear a cape. They don’t possess lightning speed. In fact, they look quite ordinary from the outside looking in. The greatest hero in my mind is Jesus Christ followed by the greatest parents God gave me. Those are just a few people on my short list, but another one I did not mention would by the soldiers that fought and those who are still fighting for our country.
Many men and women have died for the thought and idea of a better America. An idea of a place where all races, ethnicities, and backgrounds can live in peace and harmony. We live in a country where we are able to worship the one true God freely, without fear of losing your life. A country truly known for being the UNITED STATES of America!
It’s easy to take for granted what these courageous men and women have been fighting for since the United States was founded in 1776. Looking back at our history, we have been at war 217 years out of the 238 years of our existence. During this time, there have been many brave men and women fighting for the one word that we all enjoy the most — FREEDOM!
I believe we should give people their due honors while they are alive. This is why I am so proud to support and honor not only the past, but also the present men and women who have served our country.
