For the Troops

You don’t have to support the war to support our Troops.
I think America needs another wakeup call. When the war first started we all wore ribbons, prayed daily for our troops and sent letters and care packages. We were afraid for them and what could happen to them. And we hear about things happening every day – via the news on tv or in papers. Lives are lost for peace and freedom. But where are the ribbons now? Has it been so long that we’ve forgotten them or put them on the back burner?
Let’s remember that this is our neighbor, friend, brother or sister, daughter or son. This is the flesh and blood of America. We need to continue to rally around them until the last soldier is brought home and we need to do it loudly. There is strength in numbers.
If you don’t know anyone in the military that you are writing to or praying for let me make you aware of a really amazing cause called Adopt-a-Soldier. For the cost of a stamp and an occasional care package you can give a soldier support and encouragement from home. http://www.adoptaussoldier.org/ There are many campaigns like this that you can get involved in and there are so many soldiers who could use the support.
Please, get involved. Together we can keep their spirits up until they come home.
