So I felt that I needed to post this song. I've been planning to share it somewhere for a while and just couldn't think of the words to go along with this post. Truth is, this song speaks for itself. I guess seeing a Civil War reenactment inspires you to write.. anyway, a small bunch of you (more like 3 or 4 of you) know I have a brother and he's in the Army. He was a jerk to me and my parents, but were still living. Scarred, but alive. Until they aren't there to bother you, you never really how much you loved them even though they tried their best to destroy your life.
Truth is, we worry more about other crap than we do our Military. We put so much stress into protesting about what's right and/or wrong and we pay no attention to our military. There are people out there burning flags. American flags. They claim they're the Americans though. What about the men and women who fought knowing they could lose their lives? What about all we fought for, to gain freedom and peace? Truth is, the Army, the Navy, the Marines, all of them. They fought to keep that flag flying in the sky. They still pulled through when no one came to their cries.. no screams for help. They begged for help and someone ignored them.
The bottom line, is that our veterans and our troops right now, are highly unappreciated. Praise the politicians all you like, but remember, they're not going to be the ones getting out there on the battlefield fighting for their country. If you know anyone who protests, or knows of a flag burner, pass on the message that someone in the military died and risked their life to keep that flag flying high in the sky.
