“It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen”

We see lots of military down here and respect everything they go through. Regarding fixing up anything, I notice the roads up there in Leavenworth are full of potholes!

Hello to all the courageous people who serve their country and our allies and the USA have always been trusted friends of Great Britain, its very heart breaking to see so many young people make such huge sacrifices,but we the citizens appreciate and respect the work they do in the armed forces,air forces and military, on the ground in the air, for all of our freedoms, its just so moving to see a real life situation and how much effect it has on all the ones you love, how strong you have to be every day, and how much bravery there is.Is such a wonderful generous and hard working team on the 'Make over' TV show, amazing consideration goes into the designing and it is always very touching and emotional, I find myself crying on every programme, all the special people whos lives have changed for the better,thank you team 'extreme' for making this happen!thanks for the people who allow us into their personal experiences, I was so moved by how Daniel coped with his experience , a true hero and brave man, a wonderful father, I can only begin to imagine his pain and suffering, I trained as a nurse and appreciate how much people go through, and I am a mum of 4 and single parent, it is all out own personal journey and battles in life, and we stand strong together,supporting each other and make this world a better place for our children, this has made me believe more in human kind, God bless you all, God bless the children of the future.x Debi
