Day 11- Takin’ names

Thank you veterans (and active military) for selflessly serving our country. Happy Veterans Day!
The greatest sacrifice someone can make for another is his life. God gave His Son to die for the promise of eternal life. Our military give their lives for the promise of this life.

I am thankful to be an American. I am thankful for a military that protects our people at all costs. War is a terrible element of this life, but it is necessary. War is as old as sin. World peace will not happen until eternity. I am thankful for the men and women that serve to keep our country and the world safe from evil. We owe all of our freedoms to these men and women that protect it.

It always bothers me when people are “anti-war.” I want to ask them if they are also “anti-freedom” because that’s exactly what they are asking for. If we do not defend ourselves, someone, some country will defeat us. I believe we are called to protect each other. That means defend our people through war. That means defending women and children being abused in foreign countries. That means stopping terrorism.

Today, and everyday I enjoy these freedoms, I’m thankful for our military kickin’ booty and takin’ names.

“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” ~Elmer Davis
