I support the military. Family members of the military. Veterans and fire fighters emergency medical response team members nurses and doctors that save people's lives everyday. They live in a stressful world and see what the rest of the world doesn't. They protect and serve so you can live in a safe environment and they do it because it's what they can do. Sometimes being next to someone when they are going through any traumatic event in their life, they need that comfort. The support of someone who has seen it hundreds of times and still shows up to do it again. The strongest have to live in the gray areas and the in between to be able to withstand the amount of love it takes to want to be there. Period. It's love for your family and friends. And of course God.
