A chapter in the book World As I See It 6

Which Word?

by Barb Hensongispsaca

When I think of our brave men and women
of all walks of life
that risk their lives
everyday
for family and country
I think of two words-
courage
sacrifice

COURAGE: The ability to do something that frightens one.

I think of other words
to accompany courage:
Backbone
Bravery
Daring
Determined
Panache
Tenacity
Valor

SACRIFICE: A loss or something you give up for sake of a better cause.

The best words I found were:
Forfeit
Give

I added my own word:
Ultimately

Would they do it again?
Definitely
Explicitly
Unequivocally
Unmistakably
Precisely
Certainly
Unquestionably
Undoubtedly
Absolutely
Undeniably

These are men and women
that give their all,
and sometimes pay the ultimate price
to keep our homeland safe.

Don't forget them
in our joyous season
of gift giving and
family gatherings.

They are also our family.
