Living by the fire line

Yesterday I met one of my friends after a gap. I had gotten news that her son got enlisted in the marine. She started talking about it and her eyes were welling up. I could see a mother being terrified for her child. Always felt that there has to be lot courage in a man/woman to enlist for the army. But there is whole lot to it. Not only them, it becomes family decision. Because when they are out there at the frontline, family back home is getting killed every day worrying about them.

This subject is very close to my heart. I have always regarded the soldiers than anyone. I think they need to get the highest respect than anyone. First of all I (and most of you all are) am against war. But then it’s become inevitable in today’s world. So every country needs to have armed forces to defend it and also help other developing countries to keep themselves safe.

Well, I wasn’t gonna start talking about the peace between the countries. Coming back to topic of soldiers, I have to salute to all the parents, spouses, kids, siblings, friends who let go of their beloved ones, so that …. We can be safe and have a better life. I am at loss of words, now that I am getting more emotional. Just hoping and praying for all of you out there!
