Remember The Heroes II

By: John Colanzi

As the 4th of July approaches, I'm sitting here
thinking how lucky I am.

I can sit at my keyboard and say whatever's on my mind.

I can spend the 4th with my family without fear of some
tyrant or dictator.

Why can I do this?

Because there are young men and women around the globe
making sure we'll be able to celebrate another 4th of
July this year and years to come.

They receive little in pay and recognition.

Sometimes
they're forced to endure situations that would be
considered cruel and unusual punishment under any other
circumstances.

They're spending this holiday away from their families
so you and I don't have to.

We honor them now, but what happens 5 or 10 years down
the line. Will we still remember their courage and
sacrifice.

Will we honor our debt to them when this crisis is over
and they come home and have to resume a "normal life."

I truly hope so.

The terrorists are just the latest enemy who've
foolishly assumed we're weak and pampered.

I think Charlie Daniels says in best in his song " In
America."

"We may fight among ourselves, but outsiders better
leave us alone."

Take time to Remember the Heroes who have us walking
proud.
