My name is Javiera, I’m thirteen years old, and I’m in eighth grade. I am writing this letter to you to thank you for everything you have done and everything you are doing right now. You and many others hold a very special place in people’s hearts. Not just in your family and friends but also in the hearts of strangers.
You have done so many things to stick up for the United States in the war. If it weren’t because of you and the people that are over there, things here would be a lot different. You are risking your life each day for the safety of others, and I find that a very courageous and brave thing to do.
It must be very difficult to be over there so far away from your family and friends. Do you have any idea when you’d be able to come back home? It must be both hard for you and your family to be apart from each other for such a long period of time. Your family members must be very proud of you for being so brave and going off to war. Do you have any children back home? That must be extremely difficult to be away from your child, and everyone else as well.
You hold a very special part in everyone’s heart here. Not only in the hearts of your loved ones but also in the hearts of strangers. Because of you many people’s lives have changed for numerous different reasons. Here in school we pray for you and everyone over there with you each day in the morning and before we go to lunch. We are also everything possible to collect food from every class in our school to make a basket and send it out to you guys.
Everything that is being done by your guys over there is very appreciated. We all thank you for everything. If it weren’t because of you who knows how things would be over here. Thank you once again. Hopefully you can come home safe and sound and be with your family and friends. You guys will always be in our hearts and prayer.
May God bless all of you.
