I've been meaning to do a blog post about this for a little bit now, so I'm finally getting around to doing it.
Many of you have heard of the movie "Act of Valor", and heard what a great movie it is. I am one who has seen it and also thought the movie was quite amazing. There was a song at the end of this movie called "For You" written and sung by Keith Urban. This song is what really inspired this blog post. It talks about fighting this war, and the character of this song wonders if he could sacrifice his life (like the troops).
When you really listen to this song, and watch the movie, it really makes you appreciate our troops even more. I was listening to the song, and I said to myself "Would I give up my life for this country?" Honestly, I don't really have an answer to that question; I really don't know. And unless it came down to it, I don't think I will ever have an answer to it. It's easy to say "Well, of course I would!" But the point for me is not whether I, or if anybody else would. For me, the point is that there are people out there giving their lives up for our country.
So, once again, I 'd like to say how appreciative I am of all of our former and current troops fighting. They have, or are giving, the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
And, of course, I have a video of Keith performing this song.
I was going to post the music video, but instead, I've decided to post his performance from last night's ACM Awards; it makes you feel more emotional (in a good way). It might make you cry, but it will definitely give you a great feeling inside.
