Udiah (witness to Yah) (1959 / USA)
A Recent Reply to a Soldier Who Questions If The Hell He's Experiencing Was Worthwhile.
While I do not know nor hope to ever find out what it feels like having to have taken another's life, I wish to thank you and all your fellow comrades for my children and their children. You placed your life on the line so that my children could grow up free, without oppression. That my grandchildren might never know the great fear one faces when they flee for their very lives. I owe you a debt that's impossible to repay. When I see my future dreams able to experience joy instead of hardship, I think of people like you. People who, without reguard for their own pleasure put it all on the line for those who they may never see nor hear from, just for a purpose, a principle, that all people everywhere might someday be free.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is the veterans of this country that deserve, no, that have earned, both our respect and our help in any way. All I can say is that God knows what you are going through, He does exist, trust in Him, He's the reason this great nation is the shining light to all the world. Your sacrifice does not go unnoticed.
