And why does she support them?
Dear who reads this. My name is Anna I'm a 28 year Swedish living in Sweden. To all outhere I want to say this..I'm a proud troopsupporter and have been for about 3-4 years. I been writing at least 300 soldiers in field during the years and I LOVE it. Why I as a Swedish support the troops? Cause I belive in freedom for everyone and sometimes that freedom has to be defended even with guns. And if freedom aint worth fight for then nothing is. Maney people here in Sweden think I'm crazy for supporting USA and the troops. But as I see it, the soldiers are outhere fighting for a better world and nomatter your opinion about the war support the soldier. The people who are against the troops should know that the soldiers are outhere GIVING their lifes for their right to say they are doing the wrong thing and the soldier ask nothing in return not even a thank you, they just want to be rememberd. At least one could do is not to judge the soldier. Its not only the right thing to support the soldier but also a natural thing . The brave men and women are outthere for OUR sake why shouldnt I take time to say Thank You and well done?Someone asked me why do you care for them? Have you forgot you are not American? Then I say as Demi Moore in the movie when she answerd why do you love them so much?` Cause they stand on the walls taking the bullets for us. People who live in a democratic country forget how easily that freedom can be taken away. The soldiers job is to defend our precious freedom and its up to us who enjoy the freedom to help them and support them. Thats OUR job. The soldier who die in this war He dont die for no oil, he dont die cause he was told to. Not cause he had a prob with muslims not cause the President told him to not as a revenge for 9-11. He died for what he belived in and for everyone to be able to live in a free world. And THATS why I support the troops. Freedom is never free and the troops pay a dear price for it. I will never forget what they do outhere cause all they do outhere they do for ALL of us to ensure our freedom.Thank You for taking time read this. To the troops outhere. THANK YOU for your service. Know its thanks to YOUR bravery and sacrifice I have the freedom to write this, Never forget you are a Hero in my eyes cause if it wouldnt be for you I wouldnt even have the freedom to say THANK YOU. God bless all soldiers may you all come home soon and safe so yourself can enjoy the freedom you fougth so hard for. Sincerly
Here's a poem I wrote for all the troops.
THE DIFFERENT KIND OF SUPERHERO.
Theres a different kind of superhero.
He has no superpowers and he doesn't wear a cape.
His only weakness is his humanity. And the superpowers is in his heart.He flies without a cape, using parachute and/or plane.
His superhero's gear is in his 60 pound backpack.
He is not susceptible to kryptonite but bullets can kill him.
Unlike the superheros in comic books, this Hero sometimes works days without rest or sleep.This Hero can cry and he sure knows the meaning of loss and pain .
This Hero can cook his own meals and he will go hungry for days if he has to. This Hero has a girlfriend or wife waiting and worrying about him at home.
This Hero misses them SOOO much and sends them his love as often he thinks about them and that's ALL the
time.This Hero kills with bullets and knows how to use a weapon, but this hero doesnt like to kill at all.
This Hero wears camouflage instead of a flashy outfit.This Hero always carries a pic of his loved ones under his bodyarmor. He believes it protects better than any kevlar.
This Hero sings the anthem with pride and joy.
He is the one fighting for all that it stands for. His beloved country.
This Hero is not as old as the ordinary comic superheros.
He is mostly between 18-25.
This Hero fears death but he fears even more the loss of any of his comrades.
This Hero has seen more evil and death than Superman ever has
and it breaks his good heart.
This Hero gets scared sometimes but he knows someone has to
fight the evil and he does it with love and pride.
This Hero doesn't wear a mask, he works undercover.
The magazines don't write about this Hero when he does good or
save lives 'cause this Hero works anonymously.
This Hero LOVES his people and country so much he is prepared to die for it A different kind of SuperHero.
Whose REAL powers is in his heart.
Who is this Hero?
The American Soldier.
The different kind of SuperHero.
A Hero is never fallen; he rests in the arms of God.
God bless the soldier wherever he may be at air , land or sea cause the freedom is theirs.
Written by Anna in Sweden.
Anna, thanks for letting me post this, and for all that you do to support our Heroes. There are Americans who could learn a lesson from you.
