I believe that American Soldiers should be respected. I believe that many American’s do not know the value of such great souls. I believe that as an American Solider myself, that people make fun of and put me down for the service that which I provide for them. I provide them with the power to say those hurtful things to me and others like me. I believe we fight and die for the freedoms that American’s take for granted. I believe that American’s have lost sight of what it means to live in the United States. My whole family has fought for this country, and I will soon as well. I believe that to those who protest against us, should realize that if it wasn’t for us, you wouldn’t have that right to do that.. I believe that everyone should watch “Remember this the next time you critise these men and women” on Youtube, before they are allowed to speak of American Soldiers. I believe that no one should put down my father for the people that he killed in service of this country. He never asked to be shot at and to be put in danger, he just asked for a thank you. Did he get this? NO. I believe that America needs to stand up and support our troops no matter the cause, cause one day you will need us and be faithful that you live in America, the land of the free and the home of the brave.
