Hate War—Love the Warriors
We are all war-weary. I’d be bold enough to say we all want peace—illusive peace. But, peace is never found by running off and giving up. That only makes the bullies stronger, bolder. Jesus said to turn the other cheek, but he stood firm against those who sought to do him harm. Our warriors stand for us against those conspiring to harm us, our freedoms, and our country.
Hate war, but love the warriors. Give them gratitude for their great sacrifice on our behalf, not only on Veterans Day, but every time you think of them or pass one by.
Merriam Webster says:
Duty—the force of moral obligation
Honor—a keen sense of ethical conduct: integrity
Country—the land of a person's birth, residence, or citizenship [and its people]
My heartfelt thanks to all who serve—have ever served—to keep us safe and free.
