Memorial Day has recently passed, and many have offered and given thanks to those who have served and those who still serve our country. Although many have referred to the World War II generation as the greatest generation in history, I believe that no generation is greater than another in our great country. Some may wonder why I feel this way. My answer is simply that in all generations, brave men and women have given up the comforts of home and family and put their very lives at risk to protect our freedoms.
All who have served and continue to serve in this nation have contributed to the statement, “freedom is not free.” From the Revolutionary War to the wars we face today, never has this nation gone to war with the intent to gain additional territory. All action has been to protect our freedom or the freedoms of others.
Let us never forget that many have given their lives or have received serious physical and/or emotional injury to protect our nation. We owe a debt of gratitude to all those brave men and women and the families that they have left behind. Without them we would not enjoy the greatest opportunity everyone in this nation can enjoy: Freedom.
Prayers for those who are still in harm’s way should be one thing we give and share every day.
Bless our troops and bless this nation!
