Title: This was sent to me, a read that needs to be read!!!!
Post by: 2Nutz on June 18, 2009, 08:16:05 PM
BE  SURE TO READ THE LETTER THE MARINE SENT TO HIS DAD AT THE  END...... It is worth the reading 
       
         THE MARINES WANT THIS TO ROLL ALL OVER THE U.S.

This is a poem being sent from a Marine
to his Dad.  For those who take the time
to read it,  you'll see a letter from him to
his dad at the bottom.  It makes you truly 
thankful  for not only the Marines,  but

ALL of our troops. 
THE MARINE 

We all came together, 
Both young and old 
To fight for our freedom, 
To stand and be bold. 

In the midst of all evil, 
We stand our ground, 
And we protect our country 
>From all terror around. 

Peace and not war, 
Is what some people say. 
But I'll give my life, 
So you can live the American way 

I give you the right 
To talk of your peace. 
To stand in your groups, 
and protest in our streets. 

But still I fight on, 
I don't fuss, I don't whine. 
I'm just one of the people!
Who is doing your time. 

I'm harder than nails, 
Stronger than any machine. 
I'm the immortal soldier, 
I'm a U.S. MARINE! 

So stand in my shoes, 
And leave from your home. 
Fight for the people who hate you, 
With the protests they've shown. 
Fight for the stranger, 
Fight for the young. 
So they all may have, 
The greatest freedom you've won 

Fight for the sick, 
Fight for the poor 
Fight for the cripple, 
Who lives next door. 

But when your time comes, 
Do what I've done. 
For if you stand up for freedom, 
You'll stand when the fight's done

Hey Dad, 
Do  me a favor and label this 'The Marine' and send it to  everybody  on your email list.  Even leave this letter in it.  I want this rolling all over the US;  I want every home reading it. Every eye seeing it.  And every heart to feel it. So can you please send this for me? I would but my email time isn't that long  and I don 't have much time anyway. 
You  know what Dad?  I wondered what it would be like to truly  understand  what JFK said in His inaugural speech.  'When the time comes to lay down my life for my country,  I do not cower from this  responsibility.  I welcome it.' Well, now I know.  And I do. Dad, I welcome the opportunity to do what I do. Even though I have left behind a beautiful wife, and I will miss the birth of our first born child, I would do it 70 times over to fight for  the place that God has made for my home. I love you all and I miss you very much.  I wish I could be there when Sandi has our baby,  but tell her that I love her, and Lord willing,  I will be coming home soon. Give Mom a great big hug from me and give one to yourself too. 
Aaron 
 
  FREEDOM isn't FREE  Someone pays for you and me.
