They Are Fighting

The guys are fighting for us.
There may be no bombs falling,
But there are children crying for their daddys,
And wives in tears over having their husbands gone.
They have no way to kiss their families for Christmas.
And their mother’s are heart stricken for their safety.
All those friends and loved ones that are separated like this,
Are not doing it to party.
They are already fighting in their hearts.
That’s why they’re over there.
They’re defending their country just by being over there.
How can you say they’re not fighting?
Can’t you see they are already at war?
And they are fighting for you.
God be with them.
They need Him.
