Members of military make great sacrifices
On my normal run, I started thinking about the many sacrifices our young military personnel make in combat. I wonder if we really appreciate their sacrifice. At sporting events, we see strong military personnel saluting the flag during the playing of our national anthem. Maybe we should ask those who have lost limbs or suffered depression due to combat to salute or hold the flag during the anthem. It might make people really think about what being a patriot is all about. After sitting down to enjoy the contest, feeling good about ourselves, take some time to think about those who serve our country.
