Highway of Heroes

Last night as I was watching the news on NBC, I saw the following story and was brought to tears. Gut-wrenching, sobbing uncontrollably tears. This shook me to the core.

Tears because I grieved for the families involved, tears because I was so touched by the Canadian people and their tribute to their slain soldiers and tears for our country and our soldiers that we so easily dismiss for their service. It saddens me that our country, which has lost many, many more soldiers during this horrible war, doesn't pay near as much tribute to our slain soldiers as the people of Canada. God Bless the people of Canada.

Take a few moments to watch this now and then take a few moments to say a prayer for all of our soldiers. Those that are still here with us, and those that have passed. Today is Veteran's Day, something I sadly admit that I never paid much attention to, but after seeing this last night I will now, and forever, pay tribute to those who have fought for our country and those who continue to fight. May God Bless them all and their families.

Very sad. I can't even imagine what those parents go through. I hope the dying ends soon.

God Bless them all for what they do. The very last measure. Respect. We can all take a lot from that. Thank you so much Kat, I needed to see this today.
