This holiday is to honor those that serve so we that live here in the United States can do and have what we have. I say serve because I believe once a soldier always a soldier.
Things are not all perfect, there is room to grow, things are always changing. And we have the freedom to to actually express these things in this place called the U.S.
My husband served for 14 years and continues to serve, although it looks different today.
To Lew and all the men and women that give and have given their heart and soul, so we can live in this space and time here on this planet Earth.
Words are truly insufficient to express the gratitude people feel for your service to this country. I am honored to know you and share this life with each of you.
My prayer for you is that your life is full of love, you have peace in your heart and your walk is graceful.
My experience of one man sharing his trauma with me recently has kept me very present to the fact that I truly have no idea you’ve been through. What I do know is we each come here with a purpose that we are fulfilling.
Please KNOW that each experience is always for our highest growth, even when it doesn’t seem like it. Every single thing we go through is to help us each become the best human being we can be.
Thank you for your ultimate sacrifice that requires your humbleness and courage, so that we may all love and live as freely as we know how to do.
You’re a HERO in the finest expression of what that entails and means. No matter what you have done in the name of your service or your “job”, you are a HERO in the greatest sense.
I hold my hands in a prayer or namaste postion, since I am not a soldier, I feel it would be diserspectful offering a “salute” to you. My greatest way to express my appreciation is to hold my hands in this position.
“Namaste: is a thank you to the world created and around us. The “divine in me honors the divine in you” references the spiritual transfer of the word. Honor the individual who is graced by your presence.” (a definition I found online)
This is expressed to those living and those that have fallen. Namaste’
I am remembering ALL my own family and people I know. I am remembering those that walk in spirit now and those that still reside here to bless us with your presence.
