Today we honor and give thanks for all Americans who died while serving and protecting Americans, wherever far away and however brutal that task became. We celebrate the lives and sacrifice of our fallen.
I hope that we Americans are indeed offering up our prayers for those who have served and their families. I hope we remember to thank God today that we have such patriots who gave up their lives because they believed that America is our home, our land, the heart of who and what we are as not only a nation among others, but a key part of our very identity.
I like to post this video each year. It’s a fitting tribute to what we have to celebrate and observe today.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
