I haven’t lost anyone close to me who gave their life for our country.
But I know many of you have.
What a noble act for your loved one to protect all of us.
When I am feeling annoyed over something small – even sorrowful over something big – I think of the 15 and 16 year old young men who fought in the Civil War and beyond.
They never got to experience life.
These are difficult things to grasp, no matter what your story is.
Christians have hope; a certainty and assurance of knowing there is life beyond here on earth – where God says he will wipe away every tear and there will be no more sorrow or death.
My prayer is comfort and peace for you today as you remember the loss of your loved one for our nation.
