Greater love has no one than this, that someone down his life for his
friends. John 15:13
Life Question: Have you thanked a soldier today?
As we all know, yesterday was Memorial Day. A day for people
to grill outdoors, have a picnic, or some celebration of the kind.
For friends and family of our fallen servicemen and women, it's
a time of great sadness for those whose family members didn't
make it back. It's a time too, to rejoice for and thank those who
made it back! We must not miss an opportunity to shake the hand
of, or hug a soldier and thank them for the freedoms we have today!
They deserve our respect and recognition for the sacrifices they have
made: Time away from friends and family, time away from their jobs,
missed holidays and other special day, not being able to communicate
with loved ones on a regular basis etc.
Sacrifice is only part of the job.
What they've seen, gone through and endured leaves scars on some
that will never heal, leaves images in their minds that will never go
away, leaves them physically injured needing therapy and leaves them
wondering, 'where do I go from here?'
Let's remember them not just on Memorial Day, but always.
Let's also not forget those human rights acitvists and lawyers
around the world in restricted and hostile nations who have
also fought for, and in many cases, sacrificed their own lives and
freedom to protect the rights of its citizens around the world.
To all of you who fought, and continue to fight for our freedoms
and the freedoms of others.....THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!!!!!!
