Q: In light of 11.11.11 and Veteran’s Day tell us about your favorite solider and how he or she is saving the world. Fictional or real life.
Ohkey…well, I’m not that big on wars, fighting and all that, sorry. Hate guns too, I’m that kind of a person, you know? My idea of battling it out with anyone is a pamphlet probably, and you tell them off until they capitulate…Yeah, I know…
But if I had to pick a fictional soldier I have wove for, I’d go with Leroy Jethro Gibbs from NCIS, a TV show I love and watch avidly. He’s the “Semper fi” sort of dude down to the bone, and I really admire his courage and attitude, and his character.
But my salute goes to each and every soldier of the world that fights for everyone else’s safety, freedom, wellbeing. Each one of you guys is my hero 🙂 You save the world by sacrificing your individual safety, comfort and wellbeing to protect everyone else’s, you save the world by becoming the essence of excellence. Sometimes you save the world by giving up your lives, and we all need to remember that, I think, each time we step out of our homes, or hug someone we love, or have a laugh with friends. We’re all enjoying that, whatever it is, because there were or there are heroes doing the fighting for us, being brave and bigger then life for us, doing the dying for us.
What about you? And don’t forget to hop around and say hi to people, we’re in this together ne?
