A Child's Goodbye
Here's a picture that will get your right in the heart. This 4-year-old child is hanging onto her dad. She did not want to let go, even though he was in formation as he was about to be deployed.
This photo was taken by her aunt in Pennsylvania. This picture is a poignant reminder that freedom is precious, and is certainly not free.
We must remember to salute the brave men and women overseas. We are blessed to live in a country many can only dream about. If it were not for these brave men and women willing to say goodbye to their families, we would not be able to say hello to ours. Let's hold on to our pride in America, with the same intensity this child is holding on to dad.
