They are mostly young. They are mostly without degrees from Universities. They are mostly our children. We do not deserve them.
They saved millions at a Tsunami in Indonesia. The have brought water to countless millions without. Aid and comfort to people attacked and brutalized. They free nations and make it so little girls can go to school without death or injury.
I live out in the country but my town is Top Gun Town. My wife works on a base. And I salute the million people who live here every day.
They are half my age with half my income and half my education. And they are my Hero's.
So I do not care if you are Buddhist or Atheist or Christian or Muslim --- here is a prayer:
God look over my personal children who protect the world. Take me before you take a single one of them. Love them as you love me and much more. Let them dream of peace and then give it to them. I pray so they do not need to. I pray for I am not in harms way. Let me see each again driving down my road. Or take me so I do not see them but know them. I am weak but they are strong. Protect my girls that serve and protect my men who fight. Bring them home from the Danger Zone.
This prayer is made not in their name but in mine on this day from the home they have protected. Amen
(anyone can join in this prayer for our great warriors who protect us every day)
