This post started out with some soldiers that had been left out overnight & reminded me of how boys play. Barely a day has gone by in the past 2 years that these men (or generations of the originals) have not been played with by my son(s). And then as I had trouble getting a good photo I started to think of a deeper meaning. Not the "toy", but the soldier. Of the men & women who risk their lives (and sometimes give their life) every day so we can be safe. And I'm thankful. So very thankful that I live in a place where my children have no worries. And I can let them be free to be children because I am not afraid.
Thank you. From the bottom of my heart.
I hope this post doesn't offend anyone, it isn't my intention. I mean it to honor those who serve.
