Strength and Courage

On this day of rememberance I am grateful for all the men and women who have served or are serving for our country and freedom. We will never forget.

The following was sent to me a long time ago and I kept it because it just says so much. We are all strong and courageous people and it is important to recognize that in ourselves. Weather we are fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan or are fighting our own internal war, finding strength and courage will get lead us to victory in the end.



It takes strength to be certain,It takes courage to have doubts.
It takes strength to fit in,It takes courage to stand out.
It takes strength to share a friend's pain,It takes courage to feel your own pain.
It takes strength to hide your own pain,It takes courage to show it and deal with it.
It takes strength to stand guard,It takes courage to let down your guard.
It takes strength to conquer,It takes courage to surrender.
It takes strength to endure abuses,It takes courage to stop them.
It takes strength to stand alone,It takes courage to lean on a friend.
It takes strength to love,It takes courage to be loved.
It takes strength to survive,It takes courage to live.
May you find strength and courage in everything you do,And may your life be filled with Friendship and Love!
