Thank you for your service

I think all too often it is easy to forget why we have our choices.

I can say I am not comfortable with violence and choose to solve problems in other ways.

I can care for my children and my home, go to work, spend time with loved ones, go for a walk, all feeling safe (mostly).

I can disagree with my government, go and vote, and even question the intentions of those protecting me and still be fairly certain to be free from harm.

I look forward to a day when all share the freedom of this Norwegian/Irish/English/Cherokee American.

I realize that my peaceful existence is because of you who serve (have served) our country and keep my freedom to choose by whatever means necessary.

May you feel our thanks in a secure retirement, a comfortable place to live, healthcare, and honor for your service surrounded by those who love you best.

Bless you.
