The time lingers like a ticking bomb. It’s now. Strength and courage. Planning THE surprise homecoming. Awaiting you at your footsteps. Family. For all your hard work. For all of your time. You care, fight, and struggle. But succeed. So thank you. No one would ever trouble, to do the things you do. You are what we call the brave-hearted. Many look up to you; a role model, and a leader. Emotional and heart-breaking. Pride and joy fills through our country. You are a symbol of peace and happiness. But what you do is not. The pain pays off. You’re recognized everywhere. Pride. We show you off like our prized possessions. We worship you. We pray for you. And your family. You’re home. Safe. Welcome home.
