Our soldiers are heroes

Do you know any of our brave American soldiers? Do you know how precious they are to us?

I do not know one, yet I feel as if I know each one of them. Their smiles, their fears, their dreams, their tears. I love each one of them. They are our American men and women. They are a huge part of what makes America great.

I know Americans have many different opinions and thoughts. I wish our soldiers and their families knew that there are so many people who share my feelings of such a humble appreciation of their gift to us.

They have gone to a foreign land to free the world of a modern-day Hitler. The world is so twisted within itself over this issue; it is overlooking the moral thing to do, in my opinion.

When our coalition succeeds, we will all breathe easier and be freer. Do any of these people screaming hate know these soldiers are our beautiful children, fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and friends?

To me and many others, they are our heroes and we love them.

I have heard of the Iraqi peoples' horrors, heartaches and disappointments. I still have expectations of them running out in the streets to our soldiers and thanking them.
