    Reality Check

    this was forwarded to me by a friend. It's a tribute to a Soldier.


    Reality Check


    Your alarm goes off, you hit the snooze and sleep for another 10 minutes.

    He stays up for days on end.

    ______________________________

    You take a warm shower to help you wake up.

    He goes days or weeks without running water.

    __________________________

    You complain of a "headache," and call in sick.

    He gets shot at as others are hit, and keeps moving forward.

    __________________________

    You put on your anti war/don't support the troops shirt, and go meet up with your friends.

    He still fights for your right to wear that shirt.

    __________________________

    You make sure you're cell phone is in your pocket.

    He clutches the cross hanging on his chain next to his dog tags.

    __________________________

    You talk trash about your "buddies" that aren't with you.

    He knows he may not see some of his buddies again.

    __________________________

    You walk down the beach, staring at all the pretty girls.

    He walks the streets, searching for insurgents and terrorists.

    __________________________

    You complain about how hot it is.

    He wears his heavy gear, not daring to take off his helmet to wipe his brow.

    __________________________

    You go out to lunch, and complain because the restaurant got your order wrong.

    He doesn't get to eat today.

    __________________________

    Your mom makes your bed and washes your clothes.

    He wears the same things for weeks, but makes sure his weapons are clean.

    __________________________

    You go to the mall and get your hair redone.

    He doesn't have time to brush his teeth today.

    __________________________

    You're angry because your class ran 5 minutes over.

    He's told he will be held over an extra 2 months.

    __________________________

    You call your girlfriend and set a date for tonight.

    He waits for the mail to see if there is a letter from home.

    __________________________

    You hug and kiss your girlfriend, like you do everyday.

    He holds his letter close and smells his love's perfume.

    __________________________

    You roll your eyes as a baby cries.

    He gets a letter with pictures of his new child, and wonders if they'll ever meet.

    __________________________

    You criticize your government, and say that war never solves anything.

    He sees the innocent tortured and killed by their own people and remembers why he is fighting.

    __________________________

    You hear the jokes about the war, and make fun of men like him.

    He hears the gunfire, bombs and screams of the wounded.

    __________________________

    You see only what the media wants you to see.

    He sees the broken bodies lying around him.

    __________________________

    You are asked to go to the store by your parents. You don't.

    He does exactly what he is told.

    __________________________

    You stay at home and watch TV.

    He takes whatever time he is given to call, write home, sleep, and eat.

    __________________________


     


    You crawl into your soft bed, with down pillows, and get comfortable.

    He crawls under a tank for shade and a 5 minute nap, only to be woken by gunfire.

    __________________________

    You sit there and judge him, saying the world is probably a worse place because of men like him.

    If only there were more men like him!

    __________________________


    If you support your troops, resend this to everyone you know,

    if it gets to another veteran who hasn't received it yet, it will bring back memories.
