We all know the brave men and women that defend our country, we all know that the cost of freedom isn't free. We know that every day we lose more and more brave souls. We think of all these stupendous people who love their country so much that they will defend it with their lives.
What most people do not think of is the family behind the scene who loves them deeply, most importantly, the children.

The children who grew up in a military lifestyle will always carry long-term effects, which they will carry through adulthood. These effects can have many positives just as they may have many negatives.

These children can go one way or another, it depends on the person. They may want a more settled lifestyle as adults or one with more adventures like their childhood. They may even want to fall into their parent's footsteps or raise awareness for them and the children behind them, for they lived it. Some may crave adventure and would prefer to be everywhere, just like some may prefer to be stable. The possibilities are endless on what they might do or act.

Out of all the military children I spoke to and my own personal experiences, one of the best things to come out of the military lifestyle is all of the positive memories they made on the way.

In conclusion, though military lifestyle can be hard on families there are a lot of benefits, you can travel a lot of places you've seen, adventures and stories that will stay with you forever. It is important though to be understanding of these children and to offer the proper care and resources, to ensure the proper mental heath for the soldiers and that family behind those brave

    I walk through double doors that are held open by regrets and anxiety. My instrument is in my right hand; dragging me to a crowd of people. My music is in my left hand; puncturing a hole that reminds me of my sins. The tights I am wearing squeeze so tight that my legs are suffocating. My hair is pulled back revealing my identity to the world. My black dress is fitting for the funeral I am going to. This will be the most competitive competition I will be in. I greet my director as I walk into…

    Like many other children, I was sent by my parents to take swimming class at the age of four. For me, stepping into the water was the hardest. On my first lesson, I stood whimpering at the pool's edge and categorically refused to do it no matter how long the coach pleaded to me, because I was afraid I would drown. On my second lesson, I finally had the courage to get into the water and learnt how to kick. Many times, while I was swimming after countless amounts of practice, I felt as though I…

Brett (my fiancé) told me that my eyes and teeth matched: they were both red. I became offended and thought it was rude for him to point something such as this out when I had had a long…
