The word sacrifice has many meanings. Sometimes it can mean a man who serves his country. Other times it can mean a son who doesn't get to see his father. In the end, what's important is that we're here for each other. All that matters is what's ahead.
They didn't say anything, but I knew it was hard. They felt like they had to be brave for me, said I had enough to worry about.
