This comes from the Facebook page of the The Boys of 3/5 a Marine Corps unit that took several casualties late last year and early this year.
The Boys of 3/5
(PLEASE READ) REMEMBERING HEROES IS NOT MEANT TO BE EASY - I wrote to a Gold Star father this morning that these past four days have not been EASY. I want to share his beautiful and heartfelt reply with you. Coach
"It was never meant to be easy. Easy does not beg remembrance. Easy does not recall honor. Easy does not engender love and touch. If life was easy there would be NO war, NO suffering, NO hate, NO despair, NO longing...NO pain.
I for one despise EASY because it makes me complacent, makes me lazy, makes me forget.
I hope it remains extremely hard the rest of my life and a tear wells up and a pain pounds in my chest every time I think of Jason and his bothers.
I will always remember these valiant, young boys whose warrior song plays on forever in the hearts and minds of those left behind.
And I pray it never comes easy!"
Loving Father to 3/5 Marine, Sgt. Jason G Amores
