Obviously, not all of this sites readers are from the US, so you may not have interest in a post celebrating the US's independence. However, regardless of where you reside, take some time today to reflect on and respect those who put their lives on the line everyday in order to protect your country and ultimately your life. In this new world of global terrorism, and as the line between independent countries blurs, it has been put in the hands of each nations young soldiers to put their lives at risk each day in chaotic environments where the enemy blends in with civilians and where there is no clear objective or target for defining victory. Deep down we all just want a safe place to raise our families and follow our chosen beliefs. Without attempting to dissect global politics and place blame on governments or groups, I would just like to offer my thanks to those that serve and protect my country dutifully each day.
