Happy 4th of July to everyone. Just wanted to say a special thanks to those that have served this country for the freedoms we hold so dear. The freedom of religion is one that I hope remains in the United States but sadly I see it fading away. Let us all give God the thanks he deserves for giving us this dear country and for his protecting hand to those that have served it.
Independence Day always stirs within me thoughts of young men and women who have sacrificed so much throughout the timeline of history. From a young boy with trembling hands griped tightly around his one-shot musket, to the girl, just barely out of high school, clutching an M16. No matter what era or battle, it takes something special to be a solider. I’ve always had much respect for people who sacrifice. Those who give up something for another human being. The Bible says there is no greater love than for a man to lay down his life for another. Regardless of my beliefs on war, there are everyday people fighting on foreign soil, separated from their families and loved ones, and for that we owe them respect.
I wrote When a Soldier Cries last year, and wanted to share it with you today. Have a safe and happy July 4th holiday.
