A Letter I saw on the news, worth sharing

It's all for these children
This was in the "Opinions" and I wanted to share it

Soldiers give us our freedoms

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

Mountain Home News

Dear editor:

In honor and memory of all U.S. Military men and woman; past, present and future, I'd like for Idahoan's to read the following article. I hope it "sink's in!"

It is the soldier, not the President who gives us democracy. It is the solider, not the Congress who takes care of us. It is the solider, not the Reporter who has given us Freedom of Press. It is the soldier, not the Poet, who has given us Freedom of Speech. It is the soldier, not the campus Organizer, who has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate. It is the soldier, who salutes the flag; who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, that allows the protester to burn the flag.

I am interested in this Community, County, and the beautiful state of Idaho. Most of my photos will be in Idaho, but from time to time, they will be my vacations aay from Idaho. You'll see lots of my Children and Grand children, along with others in my family. Of course there will be horses and horse related things, and things I photo'd horseback.
