3 Doors Down: Citizen Soldier

http://http//www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJRthpxDM10

My friend, Kellie, shared this song with me. In these past couple years i feel like i have really become more aware of our soldiers. Brock’s dad, John, was a marine, Our brother in law, Aaron ,was a marine, Dawna’s boyfriend, is in the Navy. And now Brock, is in the Army:National Guard. But i never really paid attention to this song while it played at the movie theater. But now, that Brock is in the National Guard, and ironically, serving the weekend i saw this music video, it really hit me. I also have been helping Brock memorize the Army core values, and mission statement, etc… i guess I’m becoming a Army wife, but only slightly…. step by step. Which is nice for me.

I’m thankful that my husband hasn’t shipped off.
I’m thankful i don’t have to be alone… yet.
I’m thankful that my husband believes in what he is doing, and who he is serving.

I’m proud that my husband is here to protect and serve our country.
I’m proud that my husband is fighting for freedom.
I’m proud of my Citizen Soldier.

—————————————
Beyond the boundaries of your city’s lights,
Stand the heroes waiting for your cries.
So many times you did not bring this on yourself,
When that moment finally comes,
I’ll be there to help.
On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I’ll be right here.
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We’ll always be ready because we will always be there.
When there are people crying in the streets,
When they’re starving for a meal to eat,
When they simply need a place to make their beds,
Right here underneath my wing,
You can rest your head.
On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I‘ll be right here!
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We’ll always be ready because we will always be there…
There… there… there…
Hope and pray that you’ll never need me,
But rest assured I will not let you down.I’ll walk beside you but you may not see me,
The strongest among you may not wear a crown.
On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I’ll be right here!
On that day when you don’t have the strength for the burden you bear,
I’ll be right here!
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide from the dark of despair.
(Citizen soldiers)Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We’ll always be ready because we will always be there.
