That Day of Remembrance

It’s getting that time again; Remembrance Day.

There are many countries that have contributed blood and sweat and lives since 2001; and continue to do so today.

Doing so in a joint effort to contribute to what they thought was good and right.

Each country filled (and continues to fill) a role to the capacity to which they could by utilizing what they have trained for.

They do this to protect what is good and right.

Just like all of the things we learned about in school around this time of the year as young children in elementary school.

They do it not because they had to; but because they thought they should.

No political b.s. here.

Just saying that when we take that moment of silence on the 11th – to bear in mind that there are families just like yours that lost somebody and continue to lose loved ones in a war that’s still going on.

A war that I know is doing good things for the people of that region.

Be proud that each of our countries have people that are willing to put their lives in jeopardy to protect others and standing up for what they believe to be right.

Their own political opinions and creeds aside; they band together as their homelands ask them to; in order to protect those that need it.

Some don’t come back.  Some come back, but don’t.

Lest we forget.
