I don't know if this was written by this child, but what meaning it has!

A couple of week ago, KLAQ, KISS, and Team 600 ESPN El Paso asked listeners and  schools to write letters to our deployed troops for the upcoming holidays to thank them for their service and let them know they are in our hearts.

We received hundreds of letters and we are making sure that ALL of them or distributed to our troops around the world.

There was one letter that I saw that just touch my heart to the very core. I don't know if this is originally done by this child, but still the same, the lucky service member that receives this letter will know how this child feels about them and all service members.

This poem came a from Abril from Tornillo Elementary School.
