I was thinking of all who are away from their families this Christmas, the Soldiers who will not get to be with the families, and this piece came to me, lets remember the Soldiers and their families this Christmas
I wish I could be here
With you for Christmas
Lord knows I want to be
But I am over here
A world away
Fighting this war
Trying to keep the American way
Trying to keep
The American way safe
Trying to offer an opressed people
A taste of Democracy.
Sometimes the battle is hard
Sometimes good men fall
And we are left
To say our goodbye's
Between rounds of fire.
I wish I could be home for Christmas
But for now I will carry the spirit of
Christmas Cheer with me
Even in the battle.

|Michelle--all I can say here is thank you for this. I was that marine last year. My family celebrated Christmas without me. It was very hard to endure the pain, but we overcame. People like yourself help us through difficult times like this. You're awesome! Jim|

|Great write and very appropriate for there will be so many that will be separted during the holiday. I have a little boy in my first grade classroom whose dad is home on leave for two weeks. One week has gone so quickly....each day the little boy looks at the clock and asks how many spins around until we go home. He never watched the clock before, but now he eagerly awaits his dad coming to pick him up. He has one more week left before he returns to Iraq...this family was one of the blessed families. It's a sad situation, but on that same note I am so proud of our brave and steadfast soldiers. Great write, and happy holidays to you and your family.
