The Ultimate Sacrifice

Today, 16 years ago, USA changed in ways none of us could have ever imagined. Post-September 11, many people decided to give of themselves and become something bigger. These people made the ultimate sacrifice (remember last entry I said “sacrifice = love”) and enlisted in the armed services and decided to fight for the freedom that Americans value so much. We have many freedoms here and if it wasn’t for all these brave men and women, we wouldn’t have many freedoms left.

I thank all of them for their service and sacrifice. Some lost more than they probably thought they would; maybe the lost a limb or sight. Maybe, sadly, some lost their friends or loved ones. All in all, these brave men and women fought because they love(d) this great nation of ours and are willing to do whatever it takes to prove that we are united in love, freedom, and will not give in to terrorists, threats, or violence of any kind!

As cliché as it is, “united we stand; divided we fall!” We are here to help each other no matter the cost or struggles. We will fight for what is right!

Thank you everyone and yes, God bless the USA! ❤

Love and prayers, as always! ❤

About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
