I hope everyone is enjoying their day off of work in celebration of Memorial Day. Today, we honor those who are serving and have served in the armed forces. War is never preferable, but unfortunately in this world it is sometimes unavoidable. While some join the armed forces for reasons that may not be completely and solely patriotic, they all carry on the same sacrifice. Their job requires that they sacrifice their own safety. This sacrifice hopefully provides more safety for those people and ideals they hope to protect. It is for this reason that their actions are selfless, although not all may recognize their own selflessness. We are all called to live a selfless, not selfish life. Keep this and all those who are in or have been in the armed force in mind and in prayer. God bless you and God bless America!
