lest we forget…

Remember.
.
Pause for a moment and look back.
.
At the hard earned freedom we all take for granted.
.
Such a costly freedom.
.
Remember.
.
Millions of soldiers poured out in a red river of courageous justice seekers, laying down their lives in a stand for what is true, right and honorable.
.
Most not making it back home to their loved ones.
.
Many not making it home the same as they had been, after confronting the horrors of injustice and close combat.
.
Many leaving a part of themselves literally – physically, emotionally, mentally – behind on the battlefields.
.
Remember.
.
Freedom always comes at a great cost. For if it did not, it wouldn’t be worth fighting for.
.
Your freedoms – of choice, speech, rights and privileges – are yours because people chose to protect them at great personal cost.
.
Your brave soldier braved terrible conditions, loneliness, violence, sleepless nights, tension and so much more serving their country. Serving you.
.
Remember.
.
Those left behind in the unmarked graves.
.
Those in our community needing to be made whole again.
.
Those in our families and communities who are no longer with us.
.
Those with no loved ones left to remember them.
.
Remember.
.
Honor.
.
Bless.
.
