Today I Run | Suzanne’s Corner

Today I run for our soldiers. For our heroes. For our men and women who have given tirelessly and relentlessly for my freedom and for my protection.

Today I run for this world, and how unbelievably broken it is. I run for those weary, and struggling. For those who are broken and sick. I run for our forefathers and what they fought for. I run humanity and kindness for all human mind, of all skin colors, ethnicities, and race.

I run for peace, and to ignite unity. I run to understand ignorance and to pray for patience. I run for to seek clarity of a world that I admit I am sometimes fearful of and disgusted by.

I run today to for this land that I love… Thank you.

Heroes… military, fire, police, first responders, doctors,

nurses, pastors, truck drivers, clerks, gas station attendants,

teachers, waitresses, waiters, lineman,

mental health counselors, and everyone else who I didn’t mention….. I RUN FOR US ALL TODAY. May we continue to love, to be a kind human, and may our spirits be filled with a United love for all mankind….
