Our Everyday Heroes

Growing up, we all had our favorite super hero or idol that we looked up to and always wanted to aspire to be. I always wanted to be just like the men and women serving our country; these men and women were my super heroes.

Every year on November 11, the anniversary of the formal ending of World War I, we celebrate these heroes that gave up their “normal” lives to defend our beautiful country. These men and women have served in one or more of our five branches of government; Marine Corps, Navy, Army, Air Force, and Coast Guard. Unlike Memorial Day, on this day we honor those living and those who have passed away.

But why do we have to limit honoring these men and women to just one day? We should honor our servicemen every day, not just a couple days out of the year. They are willing to give up not only a comfortable lifestyle, but their lives. They wake up every morning and go to work, not knowing if they will see their families another time. They put their lives on hold so we can continue to live ours as normally as possible.

So, on behalf of The Pretty Patriot, I would like to thank the men and women, those living and those who have passed away, for giving their all. For putting the American people before themselves, for giving us security knowing we are protected from world threats, and for being our everyday heroes.

  • you either die a hero or live long enough to wear chokers and give yourself slight wedgies for pics

  • Carbs don’t count if they’re not in English...duh
  • Say what you will about my president but if his majesty starts posting thirst traps the kardashians are over 😫🍑🎂💯👀
  • “Wow it sucks that your job only took you to Punta Cana for a weekend”

The same people wondering why they’re so miserable are the same ones trying to find something negative to say about a free vacation lol. Good things happen to those who are grateful
  • Not gonna lie, both of these pictures bother me a lot and I was tempted to edit and had a lowkey nervous breakdown looking at them and I’m not saying that for disingenuous sympathy “ur perf” comments but bc it’s real and I caught myself and even though we all are projecting curated versions of our lives on here to an extent we can at least make a choice to what degree we participate in fake toxic 🐃💩. Also while some people might not understand why these pictures are so upsetting to me, when you know what your body is capable of and how far below that standard you are I believe it’s completely normal and healthy to be disappointed in yourself and want to do better. But if you’re going to edit your body in pics it should be with diet and exercise not Facetune and filters. So hopefully posting bikini pics will suck less in the summer lol
