Letter Home

on May 28, 2012

In a ceremony to remember fallen soldiers, a letter was read from one of the honored men.

This is part of what it said:

“There will be a child who will live because men left the security they enjoyed in their home to come to his,” Stacey wrote in his letter. “He will have the gift of freedom which I have enjoyed for so long myself, and if my life brings the safety of a child who will one day change the world, then I know that it was all worth it.”

US Marine Sergeant William Stacey had died in January in Afghanistan. He had written a letter to his family to be read in the event of his death.
In it he explains that he was fighting so that children may be able to live out their dreams.

We remember with great pride to live out our dreams in honor of these brave men and women. Wouldn’t it be a shame not to?
