For those who gave all

You went through fire and fear, in places near and far, facing a horror the likes of which we happy beneficiaries to your bravery and sacrifice think we can imagine…but cannot.

You suffered.

You died.

I have a good and peaceful life in this beautiful country I call home, a happy and prosperous life, a life of great plenty and freedom.

Your great sacrifice is silently, invisibly woven throughout the life, the liberty, the pursuit of happiness I enjoy today, and every day.

I thank you, I bless you, and I remember you.
