The Love Letter Campaign ~ Can't Thank You Enough...



I can't thank you enough for all that you have endured so that I may walk freely down Main Street in Lisle, Illinois without the fear of repression from some unknown enemy...

I will never be able to repay you the debt of gratitude that I owe you for sparing me the harsh ordeal through which you so valiantly triumphed....

I know that your life will never be the same...

But I also want you to know that I APPRECIATE the fact that you endured so that MY life might retain the same freedoms and rights that those who came before you secured for the people of this nation.

If nightmares keep you awake at night, PLEASE know that my prayers are with you that you might enjoy peace in your dreams...

If aches and pains of invisible wounds haunt you by daylight, PLEASE know that I will forever be indebted to you for your sacrifice of suffering...

I wish you feel pride as you walk down your own Main Street, wherever you may find yourself in this great land: YOU GAVE THIS PLACE TO US!

And, whenever you see the flag fly, I want you to know that I KNOW all that you have given to me...

I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU.

I WILL ALWAYS BE GRATEFUL FOR WHAT YOU HAVE SACRIFICED FOR ME AND MINE.

May Great Spirit bless you with peace and long, happy days free from worry and filled with abundance and prosperity for as long as you shall grace this earth.

This blog post is part of The Love Letter Campaign... a project started by FamilyOfaVet.com to encourage those who love a hero to write a letter sharing their story (where they started, what they've faced together, and why their love endures). It's not just for spouses, but also for parents, siblings, caregivers, and friends. It's about telling the "rest" of our stories... stories that continue despite PTSD, TBI, and the challenges of life after combat. To share your love letter or find out more about the campaign, visit http://www.familyofavet.com/love_letters.html
