One Final Thought...

on Veterans Day... well, maybe two. Someone sent around an email not long ago, showing a picture of like three or four American soldiers in Iraq, trying to get some rest. There was mud and standing water all around, and they had tried to make a mound of dirt which stood a little above the water that they could sleep on. Well it said something about "Have trouble sleeping last night? Bed not comfortable enough?" and stuff like that. Well the gist of it was how much we complain over every little thing and never take the time to think about people thousands of miles away from their homes and families who haven't slept in their own bed in months and months.

The other thing was a Vietnam veteran called in today and basically you know you want to say thank you for your service. He just about started to cry and was like "It's not about me. It's about all my buddies that never made it home." Wow. What do you say to that?

"Love your country and live with pride. And don't forget those who died. America, can't you see, that all gave some, but some gave all. Some stood thru for the red, white, and blue, but some had to fall. If you ever think of me, think of all your liberties and recall, that some gave all..."
