I know lately, I haven’t been writing about sports, but this is something that needs to be written.
Often times, we find ourselves too wrapped up in our busy lives to really sit back and think about why we get to live our lives freely.
It’s because of every single selfless individual that has the courage to fight for us and our freedom.
Because of their sacrifices, we are allowed to live each day knowing that we woke up as free Americans and we will go to bed as free Americans.
We are free because of the many hours, days, and years that our veterans have spent away from their loved ones, unsure of what the outcome may be.
But even with that uncertainty, they constantly serve this country with no regrets.
Truth is, they don’t do this for themselves, they do this because they have to. They serve this great country because they love this country that much.
President Donald Trump says “Make America Great Again” but in my eyes, this beautiful country has always been great because of the outstanding, selfless men and women that risk their lives daily just to keep their homeland’s freedom.
Over my 21 years of life, I have had the honor of knowing and working with numerous veterans of all branches and I make sure each of them knows how thankful I am for their service.
If you have a veteran in your family, are friends with one or run across one in public today, be sure to thank them for their service.
Because without them, where would we be?
