Freedom is not Free

Last week I was picking up my wife from the Norfolk Airport and I saw a  young family waiting in the same area I was. My first thought was that they were waiting for the arrival of a Grandparent, since I am now one twice, but what I observed was that it was a good bye to the father, who must have been a solider. The little boy, maybe 3 years old, just would not let go of his father and finally the mom had to pick him up and walk away. It was sad, it was real life, it was a reminder of how much our young service families sacrifice for us. We hear often that Freedom is Not Free, but we forget until we see what it means. God bless our troops and all those that serve, we owe them more than we will ever realize.
