For the Soldiers!

There are a lot going around the United States about war and why our military keeps getting involved in different circumstances that put our men and women in life’s dangers.  There is and has been a call from the people to “bring our soldiers back!” I know that it can be hard to think sometimes, that what are military is doing is good, but take a step back and think through these things, a poem that I found on a friends website, and see where we came from:

It Is The Soldier

It Is The Soldier not the reporter,  who has given US Freedom of the press

It Is The Soldier not the poet,  who has given US Freedom of speech

It Is The Soldier not the campus organizer,  who has given US the Freedom to demonstrate

It Is The Soldier not the lawyer,  who has given US the right to a fair trial

It is the soldier, who saluted the Flag,  who serves beneath the Flag

and whose coffin is draped by the Flag,  who allows the protester to burn the Flag

Make sure when you are talking and complaining about what is going on, that you remember those that are serving their country, at their own choice, and giving us the freedom everyday to do the things that we take for granted so often.  Lets stand behind them and not yelling at or towards them.
