As a career professional, volunteer, mom, wife, and friend, I focus on the positive aspects of life, even when the road is rough getting there. Life is funny. How you treat others, how you handle situations, and how you live each day is your responsibility ... so are the outcomes.
August 6, 2011 the ultimate sacrifice was made by "22 SEALs, three Air Force combat controllers and a dog handler and his dog." Though the families' names have not been released, I am paying honor to the the soldiers & praying for their families as they go through an incredibly emotional and devastating time in their lives.
I have friends and family, who have served and are serving. I may never understand what drives them to commit to the unknown. In my eyes, it takes a special kind of person to take their journey. They made the choice knowing what the outcome could be. They have done this for both you and me.
