Last night I had to get an anual inspection done on my truck. In the shop is a hispanic guy working the counter. He is clearly exmilitary. His right arm is gone 8" from the shoulder, his left has a scar below the elbo that must have nearly cut off that arm too. When he stepped back from the counter I saw his right leg missing below the knee and his left leg had a scar that made the arm one look like a sceeter bite. It covered most of the bottom 1/2 of his leg. This guy was happy, and pleasant, and clearly the hardest worker in the place. I watched him lean down to use his stump to hold the paper so he could right on it like it was nothing, and run around back there in his false leg better than I do on two good ones. All I could think of was how I spent the last 2 weeks whining like a baby cuz I lost a few thousand dollars on a broken truck. More than a little humbling.

Many of us have worn the same shoes as you, don"t be too hard on yourself. Thanks for sharing, and thanks to that young man and all the men and women who have sacrificed so much to keep us safe and free.

Let us all hope and pray that in November the American people will elect a government that also values the freedom and rights our forefathers built for us and this man and others he fought with as they paid a high cost. We owe them more than can ever be repaid.
