Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day, a day in which we honor and express our sincere gratitude for those who fought and those who continue to fight for our freedom and the freedom of others. We especially remember those who died in the field of battle.

The courage our Veterans displayed in battle serves as a great example for us who do not engage in combat, but who fight for the rights and freedom of those who have none in our own society. The unborn and elderly, the homeless and jobless members of our society who need us to fight for their right to life, liberty, and justice that for some reason or another are not being given to them. We must take the example of our Veterans and have the courage to vote for those who protect these rights, convert those who take them away, and always and everywhere promote their freedom through our example of faith, hope, and love. If we do not take care of the least of our own no one will be influenced to do the same.

Our battle should be one of pleading and defending, loving and serving, not attacking and dividing. Just as the defenseless need our love and protection, so too, do those who attack them need it.

We should do as Jesus taught us in Luke 6:27-36 and Matthew 25:31-46.

It is a great travesty to take away the rights of our own, when so many great men and women of courage fought and continue fighting for that very freedom we take away. Great abundance of material goods and comfort of living should not be our primary goal. Loving and serving each other should alawys come first.

Thank you to all the men and women who fought and fight for us in battle and especially those who died. May God bless you for your sacrifice and service!
