I led military card campaigns for people to showcase their appreciation to the U.S. Military. Despite having no personal connection with the military, I want them to know that they’re our heroes for protecting our country and its values. I started this campaign at our school a couple of years ago and there were many students that came to decorate and write heartwarming messages. I wanted to spread this campaign further outside of my school after seeing the connections made by students, so I hosted them at community centers such as libraries and parks. During the campaign, there was a wide range of encouragement and care given to those who had personal connections to the military, even if they didn’t know each other. Many people had their own stories to share and started developing connections with others. Families, relatives, friends, teachers, and students all came and took the time to express their words to the heroes. Even current militants and veterans arrived, and everyone gave them their support. As these cards were delivered, I received a letter from the organization (A Million Thanks) that I sent the cards to, saying that the campaigns I held had helped to increase their influence. The letter indicated that these cards “helped boost the soldiers’ morale because all of you showed them kindness and gave them strength as they fight for our protection.” These campaigns not only increased the bond between people in our community, but they also spread the message of hope across the country and seas. It raised awareness that our soldiers need a word of courage, uniting our country even more.
