This will remain the Land of the Free only so long as it is the Home of the Brave.
November 11th-lest we forget
Freedom is never free.
Wars are costly, not just in money, but in lives and loss of peace. We who have never had to endure a war in our own country couldn’t possibly imagine what it would be like to live in a country where war was the norm and not the exception.
Because we live in a land where peace exists we have no fear of where our next meal is coming from or where we’ll be able to sleep tonight. Our brave men and women that protect our country and keep the peoce are to be applauded for all they do. They have pledged to do their duty no matter what the cost.
Try to remember what we have, because of the sacrifices that have been made for us. I’m so thankful for our heroes’, the men and women that serve our country, past, present and future and cannot sing their praises enough to possibly express thanks for all they do.
I pray for their protection every day. I think prayer helps and does wonders. And theses wonderful people do deserve our prayers.
Lord, Bid war’s trumpet cease,
Fold the whole earth in peace.
Oliver Wendell Homes
