That was a wonderful tribute to Sean and a very special post for Heidi and Colin.
I have thought about Russ and all the young soldiers these last few days, watched TV coverage, etc., and we Americans should get down on our knees and be thankful for all those who risk their lives or who have lost their lives in order that we might live free. I don't think the average American really realizes the sacrifices military families endure. God bless all of you.

Sarah - What a wonderful post. I don't know you, Heidi or Colin, but frankly, I feel like I do. I read your blog everyday (and Heidi's) and I will be honest when I say that this wasn't the first post to leave me in tears. As an American, I am thankful for your husband, I am thankful for Sean Sims and I am thankful for you, Heidi, Colin & all military families. You make sacrifices every day for the good of our country. In Heidi's case, Sean made the ultimate sacrifice while serving his country. When my 3 year old says her prayers at night, she asks God to watch over "soldiers". Tonight, we will say a special prayer for the Sims Family.

Now that was just beautiful . . . you are so good with words (remember my comment about "smart people" topics). Thanks for remembering ALL our fallen soldiers.

Sarah - that was so nice. Don't ever let us forget Capt. Sims and his family.
