We follow a boy as he walks home from school He opens the mailbox takes out the mail and finds an envelope from the United States Army He freezes for a second then rips the envelope open to read the single page inside It only takes him a moment to read the page but it would be a while yet until he feels the full weight of the message contained therein He walks like a zombie still clutching the letter into the house and sits heavily into the kitchen chair the same chair that his father always sat in for breakfast lunch and dinner but would never sit in again The word never echoes resoundingly inside the boys thoughts like the ringing of bells His father would never again take him to a football game never again play football with him never watch him graduate from college never see him marry the girl of his dreams and never see his grandchildren As the boy sits there lost in the nevers his baby sisters cry of Im home startles him out of the seat and brings on a moment of sheer panic How would he break the news to his sister His mother As his frantic eyes roam over the pile of mail he sees the envelopes containing the monthly utility bills and mortgage payments Despair sets in as he wonders if his mothers low-paying bank teller job would pay for all of it We the American people can show our appreciation for our nations veterans service by helping families such as the boys through those dark times We should establish a national fund that would help those families pay their bills and provide services like job seeking to help those families get back on sound financial footing We return to the boy as he bitterly asks an empty kitchen Do they appreciate the sacrifice my father made Will he become another statistic to be pushed
