When a Soldier Comes Home

Note: This content is being circulated around the world; please help us keep it going.

When a soldier comes home, they find it hard…

… to listen to their child whine about being bored.

… to keep a straight face when people complain about potholes.

… to be tolerant of people who complain about getting ready for work.

… to be understanding when a co-worker complains about a bad night's sleep.

… to be silent when people pray to God for a new car.

… to control their panic when spouses tell them they need to drive slower.

… to be compassionate when a business executive expresses a fear of flying.

… to keep from laughing when an anxious parent is afraid to send their kids off to summer camp.

… to keep from ridiculing someone who complains about hot weather.

… to control their frustration when a colleague gripes about his coffee being cold.

… to remain calm when a daughter complains about having to walk the dog.

… to be civil to people who complain about their job.

… to just walk away when someone says they only get 2 weeks of vacation a year.

… to be forgiving when someone says how hard it is to have a new baby in the house.

The only thing harder than being a soldier…

… is loving one.
