Life or Something Close

Please support our guys...

Support your SoldierI read about Tillman dying today, how sad. He gave up millions of dollars and a life of luxury to go server for our country and defend the very things we take for granted everyday. My best friend is preparing to leave for Afghanistan very soon; I ask that everyone out there say a prayer for him, his unit, and all the other soldiers out there defending our freedom. Some of you may not agree with this war or its purpose, but do not defile these men's lives by disrespecting them and their mission. If you feel so strongly about it, use your vote to change the world, but remember these men are following the orders of those we have elected to make the decisions for our country. Before I go on and on let me leave you with this:

It is the Soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of press
It is the Soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer who gives us freedom to demonstrate
It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
who serves beneath the flag,
and whose coffin is draped by the flag,
who allows the protester to burn the flag.
