DO YOU EVER STOP TO THINK OF THOSE RISKING THEIR LIVES EACH DAY FOR YOU????



Warriors are the ones who protect you and yours
Whether they wear the uniform of war or peace
They all have the same goal in reality you see

Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines or Coast Guard
All serve to maintain your safety and freedom
They all work together to defend our nation

There are the warriors of peacetime as well
The Policeman, Fireman and the EMT's also
Who preserve the safety of our own citizens

They serve in dangerous jobs for all of us
To make our lives better and much safer too
Many times making a life or death difference

In both cases of war or in peace we rely on them
While one group maintains our individual freedom
The Police, Fire & Rescue workers save us at home

Isn't funny in some ways how some treat them all
They either love or hate the military for fighting
And at the same time they do the same to the others

They need both groups to live and prosper in safety
Yet some will condemn them for having done their jobs
And as they do this thankless job they never complain

While back home all the citizens go about their lives
Giving little if any thoughts to those fighting the war
Or the Police, Fire or EMT's risking their lives here

Most demand their freedom and their rights but
never have they themselves done these thankless
jobs or have they ever had to risk their lives
for the freedom and rights that they demand. I
have rarely heard anyone have anything nice to
say about those here at home who risk their own
lives daily to protect you, your family, or your
property or possessions. I've seen where someone
would complain that they had gotten a ticket for
speeding or where they've complained that firemen
didn't save their home or possession of theirs in
time from a fire, because they were too busy just
trying to get people out of a burning building.
There are times when I can't believe how shallow
and so self centered that some people can be in
life or how they wouldn't give a second thought
about anyone but themselves or their own needs,
their own wants and their own desires in life.
It seems to me that for once they should think
of others before themselves or be thankful that
they live here where we have these dedicated men
and women that will step up and volunteer to do
these very high risk jobs to keep strangers and
their families safe each day and that they'll go
out and risk their own lives for others.
