Everyday "The Call" is sounded
Everyday "The Call" is answered
They raise their hand and say "I will go." and become "the Warrior"
"The Warrior", who so willingly runs toward the sound of gun-fire
While those who hold the "home fires" burning worry if they will be safe
Some will be unharmed but gained the "nightmares of war"
Some will be injured or loose a limb and gained the "nightmares of war"
Some will be the ones who give not only their "Life's Blood" but their very LIFE.
To those "Warriors" who give their "Life" ...... for .......
Those who would NOT .... and .... Those who could NOT
I who "could NOT" will take a knee, bow my head and speak a quiet prayer for those "Warriors" who gave their "Life" because they had the courage to answer "The Call"
I who "could NOT" will pray for those who were left behind...their fellow "Brother's in Arms", a Mother, a Father, a Sister, a Brother, a Wife, a Daughter, a Son and all the others who Knew and Loved the "Warrior"
I implore all who follow this blog to do the same
Honor these "Warriors" who so willingly answered "The Call" and gave the "Life" that Man or Woman has to give for his fellow man or woman
Tell those who "Knew and Loved" them your most Heart-felt .... Thank You
if it was not for the "Warrior", we would not have the "Life" we have in the Only Nation who has the Freedoms that those around the World envy and do their damnest to get to this Nation so they can have those Freedoms too
So as you enjoy this week-end, remember the "Warrior" who has paid the "Price" for this "Life" that we have in this Nation.
Thank you "Warrior" for the Freedoms that I am able to enjoy as I live my life in this the free-est Nation on this Earth.
A very humble
