“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself”
18 years ago, I kissed a guy goodbye and watched as the bus drove him away to one of his greatest life adventures. And challenges.
18 years ago, I cried the first tears of many. Tears of pride, longing, uncertainty, excitement.
18 years ago, this guy answered the call to protect my freedom. And yours.
And for that, I am ever grateful.
Thank you for your unwavering dedication and commitment. To your country. Our daughter. And I.
We are better people, because of your example.
