I would just like to say.. To ALL of you WARRIORS over there Fighting for a better life for the people who live there and for the millions here in this country that you live and loves protection from terrorism.. YOU All make me cry because the feelings I feel when I think about you are so deeply felt.. THANK YOU...and My children and I do pray every night for All of you that you have a safe return home. And that the things you see and do while you are there are filtered by our lord so you are not troubled about them later when you come home. You ALL DESERVE HAPPINESS AND PIECE OF MIND WHEN YOU RETURN HOME. MAY GOD KEEP YOU AND PROTECT YOU ALWAYS!!
