Armed Forces Day - 2009May 16, 2009 - Today is Armed Forces Day, and I have a question for you. A friend or neighbor leaves his family to go off and protect your family. Morally what you should do for him, for her? Over 90% of us have never served in the military. I am one of them, representative of the rest. And on behalf of all of those our troops protect, I am here to thank the troops for all they do. The load which the troops and their families carry is our load. Your load. This writer's load. Our kids. They carry it for us. For you. For me. For them. The time is right to stand for those who stand for all of us. To carry the load together with them. To publicly stand up for them. To thank them. So who are you? What are you made of? What do others think? Well, our time has come. Our time is now. Your time is now. The time is incumbent to form a new relationship with our fellows who serve in the military to protect us and our families. Your family. My family. All our families. These folks go half way around the world to many different places to look out for our liberties, livelihoods, and businesses, -- and have families at home while they do. And in return we citizens and our great American companies need to look out for them and theirs. Time is precious to the troops and their families, and every day an eternity. Tomorrow is not always soon enough, and time is always of the essence in doing all we can for them. The time is now to do for them that do for us, those who preserve our liberties, livelihoods, and businesses.
