One day while at work, a woman came up to me in tears and I asked her what was the matter.
She looked at me and said, "A little boy was humbled and I couldn't be happier."
I looked at her strangely, but then she continued, "The little boy's dad was killed in fighting for our country and there was an assembly at the school for Veteran's Day. The principal wanted to honor this young boy's father by simply making a speech, but instead, he had the boy stand up in front of all his peers and had a line of US Military troops salute him and his mom for his father's service. Shortly after, the crowd started saluting the boy and his mother as well."
This woman was telling me about how this boy had to be embarassed a little bit standing in front of his peers. But it was beautiful!
The boy's father gave up so much so that, here in the United States of America, we have freedom of speech, we have freedom of religion and so many more freedoms. He even died so that way we could petition the government and the military if you choose to do so.
Personally... those who petition the military at funerals are sick. But God loves them anyway. You see, Jesus tells us that there is no greater love than for a man to lay down his own life for his friends. And that is what our troops are doing.
This Veterans Day, please take time to love someone who is currently in the military, or someone who has served in the past.
GOD BLESS AMERICA,
AND THIS BEAUTIFUL LAND.
