Thank you for serving


At the Concert in the Park tonight, there was a lot going on. For me however, the most moving part of the night was when the conductor asked everyone to stand who had served or is serving our country in the different services.

As she announced Army, my dad stood up. As she announced Navy, this man stood up. All the men and women standing were so calm and matter of fact about serving. It's our country, and they fought to preserve our rights and freedoms. We all clapped for them but I really just wanted to go and hug him.

They didn't come tonight to get recognition, but I'm glad they got it anyway. I'm so thankful for people like my dad and this man and the sacrifices they made for me.
