The Price of Freedom

The loss
       The heartache
               The suffering
                        The pain
The joy
        The camaraderie
                   The victory
                        The gain
The price of freedom is great!
The blood of U.S. soldiers spilled upon the hills of battle across the globe is a memory we must take up with honor. 
I am grateful for each one of you. I am grateful for your families. We are better off because of your sacrifice.
I will tell my children about you; about your honor and dignity. And they will tell theirs.
I will use your stories as a catalyst for the gospel. Your dedication to lay down your lives for the good of others points me to Jesus; the greatest sacrifice. For the joy that was set before Him He endured the cross. And I can’t help but think you had a similar thought as you fought for the peace of this land; that though your life was being poured out, there was joy in knowing the gain it bring to countless others after you.
I just want to say THANK YOU!
Happy Memorial Day!
