Today is a day we remember all the fallen soldiers.
For some of us it could mean someone who was very close to us. For others it is a day when we as a nation honor the men and women who fought for our freedom.
Many of the soldiers didn’t become soldiers because they wanted to, they became soldiers because within them they had a strong heart that said they had to.
Today these soldiers are not just honored, they are also missed, loved and never forgotten.
A very close friend of mine is feeling all these emotions today, as it feels like it was yesterday she got the news about her brother in Afghanistan. Her husband wrote and recorded the song, “Brother Warrior”. The song says it all.
It was written for one special brother, but it is a song for every fallen soldier and their families.
My heart is filled with love for my friend today, and also with gratitude to all the men and women who have served our country. They wanted this world to be a better place to live in. They made a difference, and they still make a permanent mark on our hearts.
