A Message to Soldiers Then and Now

Author Roseanna M. White is doing a month of giveaway's on her blog and every day she asks a question. Today's question was: "If you could send a message to a random soldier in the Revolution, what would it say?" I enjoyed answering and decided sharing my answer would be a great 4th of July post, so I modified it to be applicable to all soldiers who have fought and are fighting for our freedom. Here it is:

"You are a hero. You may think you are just one tiny particle that doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, but in truth you are so very important. Because of the battles and the trials you are facing today millions of people are blissfully living their lives in a free country. Sadly many of us take that fact for granted and forget about the sacrifices that were made so long ago and are being made today. And I'm sorry for that. On this day when we nationally celebrate the success of the battles you are fighting I want to just take a moment to say, Thank you. Thank you for all you've done and are going to do. You are changing the world."

Great letter, Abbi. May we not forget what our heroes have done and do for us.

Happy Fourth of July!
