A Love Worth fighting for

When asked the question, “So, when you were a little girl, you dreamed about marrying someone who killed people for a living?”

I get offended. Oops. My bad.

No, I pictured myself, marrying the love of my life, my hero, a hero for everyone else and that is exactly what I’m going to do.

People ask me sometimes, 

So, what if you found out that he killed children, women, old people?

I always answer with the same answer…Let me clarify it for all of you.

If my Marine was going around and knocking on doors of children and families and blowing them up without reason, yeah that wouldn’t be okay with me, but he’s not. I will completely back up this statement, so disagree if you’d like, but if a child or women or anyone at that matter were coming up to my Marine with a weapon, even after him telling them to stop and not come any closer, I would understand and even expect for him to do whatever he needed to do to be safe and come back to me. Every time. I don’t think that kids should be killed, animals, anything…but I understand that my Marine and all the other military men out there, have to do what they need to do to stay safe and protect others around them. It’s a sad time, and people over in Afghanistan especially, will use their kids, women, animals as a decoy to hurt our men and they need to do, what they need to do.

Yes, the love of my life, is being trained to kill, learning how to protect our country, but that does not make him any less of a incredible man. He is my hero, fighting for my safety, along with all of yours. I am honored to know that I will be marrying the love of my life; a true hero.
