I found this picture very powerful and In my opinion we need to realize these boys and girls need a lot more support than they are getting from their country when they come home. Again in my opinion we do not need to send these boys or girls to any more worn torn countries, their problems will never be solved by us as it all stems from Biblical times that will continue for centuries.
We need our soldiers home to protect our country not anyone else’s – Just sayin.
I am sure that all of us with children feel his sadness and pain.
A friend of a friend, posted this picture of a military dad waiting to board his flight, trying to say goodbye to his newborn daughter. Made me hug my kids a little longer, and made me fill with gratitude for the incredible sacrifices our military members make.

Being a bit of a Poet myself I thought you may get the same enjoyment out of this poem as I did.
Enjoyment, well that may be the wrong word, maybe appreciation may be better, as it brought it brought me to tears.
It is such a wonderful story but it brought some emotions to the top as I have 3 friends that are just holding on to this life by a string and the sadness of this story made the tears flow. But thats ok sometimes you need something like this to bring things to a head and not hold on to them..
This poem is a beautiful Australian story.
Well what happened to this year
Went so fast, another year older I fear
2013 has seen so many countries at War, deaths and not much peace
We can pray for the young ones but history shows they never cease
But on a happier note Britain has a new prince
We saw a country and many people joyous like we have not seen since
2014 we should all make it a year where we consider getting fit
At least begin, start out slow, start out doing just a little bit
Make it a year where we become more aware
All the things that surround us, stop, look around, with a concentrated stare
Listen to those who have something important for them, to say
Because your consideration and care could save a life that day
Observe that they maybe suffering some sort of disturbed sadness
They may be different and considered by some suffering from madness
This is a wonderful time to celebrate and be with friends and relations
To enjoy each other, Bring in the New Year together with all nations
For me I wish you all plenty of cheer and goodwill
Enjoy each moment because you and I know time will not stand still
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year
