We all cherish our freedom. But let’s never forget that freedom is a privilege that comes at a cost.
I can’t image the courage it takes to deploy to a foreign, hostile country to fight in the name of freedom, democracy and human rights. The heartache of leaving your family and loved ones behind, knowing you might never return. We should never forget the sacrifice that both the soldier, and their families make every single day.
Many of our troops will be returning from Iraq soon. If you run into one on the street or at the local pub, take a moment to thank them and let them know how much you appreciate their contribution to society. They are our true heroes, let’s make sure they know it every single day.
