Everyday Heroes


*On this Veteran’s Day, my humble offering of a small tribute to those that serve and those that have served.  Thank you.

This man is a mere mortal of flesh and blood.  The light I see in his eyes is that of an honorable man.

He sees the demons and beasts that few of us see.  He would give his life to slay them.

These beasts are not in the form you would know.  They wear the cloak of innocence.  They are the neighbor next door or the woman at the market.

This man stands at the ready so you can sleep safely in your bed tonight.

He runs toward the demons in our world, not away from them.   There are battles to be fought and demons to slay.

How can we repay the sacrifice?

  1. Reblogged this on Magical BookLush and commented:
    A beautiful post about our soldiers that are dying to protect us and our families from the evil out there. The only thing we can do to return their favour is to keep peace in our country, be nice to people and love the ones who are unloved. Stop judging and start changing. Follow this beautiful lady on https://pennywilsonwrites.com for more loving and heart numbing posts. She deserves the love she has for the soldiers as our gratitude to them and her.

  2. Nowadays, America pays great homage (and deservedly so) to those who serve or have served. However, it hasn’t always been the case, especially when I served between 1979-83. I recently wrote a post about it and with your permission, I would like to share it here.
