Are you like me when you see a member of the armed services, you go out of your way to thank them for their service? It only takes a second – you can do it and be on your way, letting the soldiers – our heroes – know our appreciation for their sacrifice. It’s easy to do… sometimes too easy. Have you considered what appreciation looks like to the soldier?
Heroes occupy a special place in our lives, but sometimes we forget that those we put on a pedestal are, like us, human.
This week, we will hear a little different perspective from some soldiers on being appreciated and elevated, as well as from a doctor attempting to treat victims of a war torn region, as we attempt to get behind the hero’s cape, connecting with the real people behind the uniform.
