I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero til the end of the night.
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight.
I felt like I finally knew why Memorial day is full of rain. I suddenly wanted to cry as this realization hit me....To me the rain represents all the tears of our fallen Hero's, their loved ones and of our nation as we dealt with their deaths...It represents the tears of our joy when soldiers come home to us, alive and safe...It represents the adversity that our Nation is fighting to over come...The war is raining down on all of us, our husbands, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, wives and children but that "rain" will not keep us down...We will still remember the ones we've lost but we will honor them by marching on as they would have done... We honor them by finding joy in the life they fought for this country to have...So even though it rains, embrace it and enjoy life today and everyday. Hug your Hero if you can... And finally, for the men and women still over there fighting this war, to their wives and children, I SALUTE YOU! You truly are to be celebrated for your strength and sacrifices... Let us all raise our glass high as we applaud you, our Hero's! May our Nation have a VERY wonderful Memorial day full of joy and love! I'm off to hug my Hero:)
