Honoring the American military
Outside of Christ Himself, it is the humble soldier who gives his life for his country, and the righteousness of God, that we should hold up as our greatest hero. Freedom comes with self sacrifice, not self entitlement.
We hear so much negative talk about how terrible America is, how sinful it is, how God will send it to its doom, yet we ignore all the good that is done by the righteous.
This is to honor all those, in all branches of service, who have served their country and fellow man in different ways:
It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the VETERAN, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.
It is the VETERAN, who salutes the Flag,
It is the VETERAN, who serves under the Flag,
ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM O LORD, AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM.
We can be very proud of our young men and women in the service no matter where they serve.
This also includes those who have to operate in secret, and receive no public recognition for their sacrifices.
God, the American military, and all protective services, have made the highest sacrifices for our nation.
God Bless them all!!!
Makes you proud to be an AMERICAN!!!!!
