My children and I have always had a roof over our heads and food on our table. We go to sleep at night without fear. We speak our minds without fear. I have never lived a life without these things. I can not fathom a life of fear, hunger or without shelter. Since I’ve never been without them, I do not know how much I should appreciate them. Like many others, I’m sure that I take these life luxuries for granted. But today, there is something that I do not want to take for granted. Some people rather.
The men and women of the United States Military. Because of these individuals, my children grew up free and safe. Because of these individuals, my grandchildren will grow up free and safe. Last night, these individuals fulfilled a promise to us. It took them ten years, but they did not waver from their task. Their task was to track down a rabid, insane, evil man and stop him from killing more innocent men, women, and children. What ever it took, through the mud and the muck of humanity’s waste lands, they persisted on. Some even lost their lives, but another would stand tall and take their place. So let it be known, that if you bring death and destruction to American soil these individuals will find you. They will track you down, even through the mud and the muck of humanity’s waste lands.
Thank you for literally giving all that you have to give.
