I wanted to write this post as we are now in September. We have only a few more months till Christmas. If you are in the States you have Thanksgiving first and then Christmas.
I wanted to remind you that no matter where you are in the world during these public holidays we have men and women in Uniform who will be working.
They dont do what everyone else does and says “See ya in the new year”. Instead of being with family and friends they are making sure that you and I are able to enjoy our holidays in safety. It is also not just them it is there families as well who serve. They do it proudly.
So when we start the run up to the holidays may I ask that you all think of someway in which you can thank someone in uniform on Christmas Eve, New Years Eve, Thanksgiving or any other public holiday.
Even if you just say on social media #ThankYouForYourService will mean the world to people.
Thanks for reading.
So I did a Vlog today on my Thank You Campaign. Mainly because I haven’t earned enough money to make it a premium account and as such cannot upload videos enjoy and comment if you choose too.
Thank You is only two words that dont take much effort to say and yet, those who wear a uniform rarely hear it from people. Why is that?
These are people who put their lives on the line for us on a regular basis and yet we can not say thank you to them for doing so. This to me is something that is unacceptable.
So to all those in uniform I say #ThankYou as well as #ThankYouForYourService
There are some people out there who believe this, I am not one of them. They believe that just because a man or woman signs up to serve their country, city or community in uniform that they should be accepting the fact that they may get abused or attacked in the course of their duties. This is something that is not the case. This is something that I firmly disagree with strongly. The only exception I find to this is when a military person who goes into war. Death and danger is something that is part of what you see.
If you see a paramedic and get punched in the face when you are trying to help someone that you have not signed up for. The same goes for every other member of the uniformed services. Show some respect the next time you see someone in uniform and say #Thankyouforyourservice.
I am just one person in this crazy world. I am just one person who has had the world collapse on her numerous times and still wakes up every morning trying to find a way to make the world a nicer and fluffier place to live in.
I have am a survivor of abuse:
Diagnosed as dyslexic at 16:
Diagnosed with depression at 21:
Diagnosed with spinal problems at 29:
Diagnosed as Autistic at 32:
But do I let the above get me down? No of course I dont. I will share my pain and sorrows as well as my joys and successes with the world.
One thing however, that I am doing, which I would like you all to know about is my Thank You Campaign.
For the last two years I have been doing this on my own with no help from anyone. It has been a very fruitful journey but I am now looking for help to continue.
I have been using my own money to support American Service Personnell who are deployed over seas. I have created goodie bags for those who work Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in uniform and I write letters and Social Media posts Thanking people for their service. I will keep doing this until there is no money left to use but if you are able to help and support me in my work then please visit https://www.gofundme.com/544xm-thank-you-for-your-service and donate so that I can continue to help support and show appreciation to those in uniform who serve and protect us 🙂
I am just one person, who is now asking for help
Today I was asked why do I say thank you to uniformed services, they are just doing their job.
Well, the answer is honestly because they deserve it. They did not have to take a job where they could potentially lose their lives protecting other, they did not have to take a job where their families could end up struggling due to injury or death but they did.
People need to remember that they do the job so that we who can’t, or those, who do not want to, are made to do it. If the brave men and women of the military, police, fire departments, paramedics, doctors, nurses or lifeguard did not do the job who would? Me personally I am an Autistic, Dyslexic, who has depression and has spinal problems so I know I would not be able to do it. So that is why I do it.
Ever wondered why there is not National Service in some countries, or why the Draft has not been re-enacted? Well, ladies and gents it is because there are enough brave men and women who do the jobs to keep us safe and I for 1 am thankful every day for these people.
