Thank you to those soliders who have served... no matter what country it has been for. Every person has lost someone due to a fight for what they believe in.. whether it is the same belief that the US has or a different belief of what is right. Today, our differences are set aside as we remember those who have given their lives and those who have made it home with so many horrible memories. They all need our support and love right now and always.
Our vets have seen so many things.. whether those things were part of war that the nation wants to forget or part of a war that the nation still admires. It doesn't matter. Those vets are people and they need to be supported. They went to war at the time they did because the government believed it was the right thing to do. We can't just shove them aside and forget about those vets who served in the wars that we no longer wish to remember. The reality is that there were people who fought in those wars.. whether that was the right choice or not.. and now those same people who made it back home are being ignored by their families because they have so many bad memories, anger problems, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. They need our love and support to help them have a moderately normal life for the rest of their years.
The most of what we can do is to offer support and a safe, loving place to those young soliders who are now coming home from recent/current wars. They need to have the support from their families and friends and fellow humans in order to live a somewhat normal life. They have many years ahead of them, and they don't deserve to be shooed away by their families.
So Thank You, Thank you, Thank you to our vets. To all the vets in the world who are experiencing the same memories and problems. Thank you for serving and allowing many countries to gain more rights. Thank you for giving up your normal way of life in order to serve and experience death of fellow soliders and friends. Thank you for going through all of the horribleness that is war in order to help your fellow citizens gain something that you/they believe in. Thank you.
