Sometimes it seems so trite and inadequate to say “thank you” to our troops. As I consider how freedom has been defended, generation after generation, it is almost overwhelming to think of the men and women who have sacrificed their all so that the rest of us can live the lives that we live, think the things we think, speak the words we speak, and act the way we act. Oh, let us not do them such a grave disservice by forgetting. Many bold and courageous men and women have gone into the trenches to do what many others are unwilling to do . . . or are scared to do. For them, I am grateful and I thank God that I was born in the United States of America and can enjoy the freedoms that we have.
Thank you to all troops who have fought for freedom – past and present. As insufficient as it seems, I also say “thank you” to the spouses and children that have made the sacrifice for freedom. May God give you peace and strength to stand proud.
Below is a video I have to share. I just ran across it recently. There is text at the end for Veteran’s Day, but it is equally relevant for Memorial Day. Please watch and remember those who have given their all for us.
