If you were fortunate enough to see Heroes At Home today, you know what Decades, Sears, and Feed The Children have in common. And there may be more that just those – I’m only halfway through the show.
You also would have a warm feeling in your heart, and gratitude for the service the brave men and women in the military give to our country.
In Heroes At Home, shown on Decades channel, 6 military personnel were spotlighted for the incredible sacrifices they and their families gave for this country. And “we” gave back to them. Sears donated rooms of furniture and furnishings to every family, and Feed The Children just donated 1 year’s worth of food for a family that was caring for not only their own children, but also for orphaned children in their extended family, and friend! 11 children in all, out of the goodness of their hearts.
I am humbled even more than usual by the many sacrifices that were made, and continue to be made, by our military, their family and loved ones – from the beginnings of this great nation, down through the ages and continuing today.
I am thankful to see people, organizations, and businesses who are reaching out and helping those people. It is a small price to pay for the many freedoms we enjoy.
I feel a greater desire to help in my own small way to let people know I appreciate what’s been done. And I want to help spread the word so others can know these things as well.
Happy 4th of July – and all that means to The United States of America! 🙂
