Letters And Care Packages To The Soldiers

A message to the Soldiers from the H.E.A.R.T. Martial Arts and Citizen Schools class:

First and foremost my students and I wish you safe passage home to your friends and family. For those students too young to understand why a soldier is a hero we have helped them to understand the sacrifice that you make on behalf of all of us and what you, personally, put on the line to secure our and others way of life is your own life. We have stressed to our students that by writing these letters and making these drawings that they could, and we certainly hope that it does, bring you a moment of joy that helps to strengthen your resolve.

I commend and admire you for what you do to truly make a difference in our lives. In my own small way I am trying to make a difference in the lives of my students as well as the community in which we reside and beyond. My actions pale in comparison to yours. If time permits, I think if my students were to receive letters from you or see your posts/comments on our site it would help them to understand that what they and you are doing is something very "real".

Stay strong.

Be safe.
