Last week was Military Appreciation Night at Concerts in the Park. I love that we live in a military community. I see men and women in uniform at the grocery store, at work, watching their kids at hockey practice, and when we're out to eat. I love the constant reminder that my freedom is not free. I know our soldiers spend months away from their wives and children. I know they miss holidays and first steps. I know some people think it's just a job, but it's a job that I don't have the courage to do, and I'm glad that my community celebrates their efforts.
