Veterans Day

We honor our veterans on November 11th every year. We should honor them daily.

It’s easy to take for granted what our armed services do. We are safe from a war in our country because they protect us. Service personnel go into some dark places and do some unspeakable work. They take out terrorists and protect foreigners, too. Our armed forces are the best in the world. Period.

I encourage you to take a moment and say a prayer, thanking God for the brave men and women who serve and have served. They are honorable…

September 11…

Twenty years ago, our world changed. In some ways we changed for the better, which is what I will focus on today.

Remember how nice people were to each other after 9/11? We had more patience, grace, and patriotism. We came together. I often wonder where that went. Are we so divided one generation later that we will never return to cohesion? I still believe in the goodness of mankind. It begins with me…

Memorial Day…

Memorial Day is a Remembrance Day established in 1868 that officially became a holiday in 1971. We are called to remember the brave men and women who died while serving our country in the military. At 3:00 p.m. local time, we are asked to observe a moment of silence in remembrance of them for their dedication and service to the United States. We have freedoms here in America that others don’t have. What some take for granted others cherish. It is because of our freedom that people can peaceably protest or fail to stand for the National Anthem. Whether we agree with these things or not isn’t the point. We have the freedom to choose.

So however you are spending the day, with family and friends, barbecuing or on the lake, I encourage you to take a moment at 3:00 to pause and reflect. We must #neverforget…
