Let’s not forget why we have this day. It is not to thank those that are still living it is to remember those who gave their lives for me to sit here and write this. The living Soldiers do not want to be thanked on this day they want you to remember their brothers and sisters who died defending this country. It is not a “happy” day.
For soldiers and veterans it is a day they remember their comrades who died beside them. Who didn’t get to go home with them. Who don’t get to see their little ones grow up. Who had fiance’s who were waiting for them excited to be marrying their soulmate. Who had wives or husbands that were making welcome home banners only to have to put them away because they weren’t able to welcome them home as expected.
While we do appreciate our soldiers and veterans that have fight for our freedom let’s remember those who didn’t make it home defending it.
