A Moment For Those Lost.
February free write
Now most people will probably be writing about how Valentine’s Day is about love and stuff, I’m not going to write about that. I’m going to write about how it doesn’t seem like anybody thinks about the people who can’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, mainly the men and women who are married to people in the Military. Like how those people won’t be able to see their loved ones on this holiday, or maybe they won’t ever be able to celebrate it again with them, because they’re dead.
How do you think those people feel when they’re out and about, and they see these young or even old couples being all romantic and stuff? Not that I have an actual problem with being romantic, I have a girlfriend. I just get tired of nobody thinking of all the people who can’t celebrate Valentine’s Day.
If it was me I’d have gotten tired of it years ago, and yelled at some of the young couples who are out on Valentine’s Day. As I said before, I’m not criticizing Valentine’s Day. I’m just trying to get the word out that maybe next time you’re hugging your girlfriend or wife. Remember those many people who can’t celebrate being with a loved one this Valentine’s Day, because it must hurt them dearly to see other people having fun. So take a moment to think about those lost this Valentine’s Day.
