This Is Why We Stand: Remembering Chris Kyle
I can’t help but to think of men like Chris Kyle whenever terror strikes our world. The Legend would have been 42 years old as of yesterday. Tragically, he is no longer with us, but his legacy has been eternalized forever in the eyes of his countrymen. The story of the American Sniper is well known, but as the world becomes an increasingly more complicated place, we must always remember his open and honest words.
Kyle had a supreme belief in duty. The enemy he faced then is no stranger to us now.
In his autobiography, Kyle had written, “We killed the bad guys and brought the leaders to the peace table. That is how the world works.” Peace comes at a price, and as a wise President once said, “We must deal with the world as it is, if it is ever to be as we wish.” One day, we will all see justice done. As long as we have the courage to stand and fight, hope will never be in doubt.
The world needs men like Chris Kyle now more than ever. We have his words, we have his story, and we have his example. Because we do, the right course of action will never be in doubt. Gone, but never forgotten. Heroes make history.
