I had an e-mail in my in-box at work that I hadn't read. It was from el Jefe, it came on Monday. I finally opened it today. I figured if I want to keep my job it would be prudent to read it.
The e-mail was actually a forward, forward. I don't like forward, forward's. They are usually chain letters or something that I'm not all interested in. This one was different. This one piqued my interest. This one brought a tear to my eye.
I've told you that Brother is a retired Marine. Because of this, I have a very tender heart when it comes to those serving in the armed forces. I want all of them to come home and be with their families, especially at this time of the year. I know, though, that it just can't be that way. They have a job to do, one that the majority of us don't want to do but yet want the freedom, blessings and peace that comes from them doing their job.
The e-mail was one encouraging all to participate in the Let's Say Thanks project. If you're not familiar with the project, I wasn't, I encourage you to click on the button on the sidebar under 'interests'. Participate if you're inclined to do so, I did.
Whether you support the current military campains or not, the troops deserve mail from home. We all like to know that we are appreciated for the jobs we do.
