First, I’ll share you some military photos. Then at the end of it, I want to show this poem from a 7-year-old first grader, Arisa Uechi of Shiraho Elementary School. I hope you read it.
Do you appreciate military presence? How? Are you opposed to it? When there are troops out there in the field, sacrifice has been made. And not just human toll. There’s longing. There’s that fear. There’s hope. Future. When the mission gets done, there’s a price that’s been paid. There were risks involved. Freedom is served. It’s a fine line, isn’t it?
Have you read the news?
What makes them join the military?
When there’s an aggression coming towards you, what happens when there’s no one there to defend you?
To the men and women of military, and to the rests of our everyday heroes, THANK YOU for your service.
