On This Memorial Day

Across the nation today, Americans are celebrating Memorial Day. Each one celebrates in a different way. Some celebrate through family picnics and cookouts. Some celebrate by spending the day at the beach. Regardless of how we celebrate, it is the sacrifice of the millions of our military who have given us the ability to enjoy life as we know it. To all of our veterans, veteran’s families, and active duty military I say “thank you” for you service.

I have posted a video below that tells the story of what we are celebrating today better than any words. Please take time and watch it. The sacrifice of our military men and women giving their lives for our freedom can only be paralleled with the price Jesus Christ paid for our freedom. Enjoy.


Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day. Today is the day that has been set aside to remember our veterans and their service. Throughout history, men and women have given their time, energy, and their lives to the defense of freedom. Some enlisted. Some were drafted. In either case, they were willing to do what was necessary in order to keep America safe and free. We owe our veterans a great debt of gratitude. For it was their willingness to leave their family, endure unknown hardship, and give their lives to protect our freedoms of expression and speech.  I believe one of the greatest expressions of commitment is found in the service of our veterans. Even though there are countless numbers that don’t agree with the given reasons for their war, they still fought, and fight today, to give Americans the right to say, “You should not be there.”  In my opinion, this is the true picture of devotion and service.

It has been said that pictures are worth a thousand words. Take time and watch this moving video tribute to our veterans.
