Respect Cost Nothing

Services for Real Estate Pros with R & D Art
When it comes to our military personnel, they really do not ask for a lot from us. They go out day and night and do their job to protect the privileges that some of us take for granted. In the end, all they really want is our respect.

This morning I was reminded of this from a video that was sent to me on facebook. I thought that I would track down the video and share it here with my readers as well. Please take the time and watch the video. It is not so much about the song as it is about the video.

Wow, Danny.  That's quite a way to wake up in the morning.  Thanks for the inspiration.

Respect is not something that is just given; you're not just entitled to it. You want it from me you're going to earn it. Every single man and women who is or has worn the uniform has my respect and will, till the day I die or the day the he or she does something to loose it. Darn good post Danny, I have a few people I'd like to pass this video along to.

Heather, I thought the same thing.

Suesan, you are so right on earning respect. Anyone that is willing to lay down their life to serve our country deserves that much. But, it is like you say in that some of them might cross the line. For those few, they can have to regain what they have lost.

Danny:  Love the video and post.  Thought it was worthy of being featured so I did just that.  We all need to be reminded that our freedom comes at a serious cost to someone else.  My hero (my nephew, Cham) is in Iraq right now fighting for my freedom.  Thank you for taking time to honor these heroes.  God bless you, my friend.

Danny, they deserve that much and a whole lot more. They have earned every bit of it. I compliment you for getting the word out as well. I sometimes feel we take our service people and their families for granted. It's refreshing to run across people such as yourself who care.

I turned the sound down until the airport scene. I don't understand those who protest. These soldiers are changing the future! The movie Taking Change is another that should be watched.

Celina, thank you for the kind words. What I did here pales in comparison to what our service people do daily.

Very powerful Danny. As a Vietnam Era Vet, I can tell you the respect is something that all of us wished we had gotten but didn't. Please don't stop telling people that our military deserves and has earned our respect.

Danny, Thank you for posting this.  We need to think about these things.  We take so much for granted.
