They go fearlessly into battle, protecting those they don’t know. Risking their lives and futures for the lives and futures of complete strangers. Braving the worst conditions just to keep our freedom. They fight just to keep our pride in being the most powerful nation in the world. We need to thank them for this and what do we do? We ridicule them and the war that they’re fighting. Next time you find yourself starting to doubt that there is a meaning for this war remember the brave and courageous soldiers in Iraq, willing to give their lives for us. Our heroes.
