“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.“–John 15:13
–Dedicated to our veterans, especially those who gave up their lives for our country.
I know it was hard,
I know it was rough,
I know it was scary and grueling and tough.
But I wanted to stop you,
Simply to say,
I’m grateful for you this Memorial Day.
I might not know your story,
I might not know your name,
Or if your work was rewarded by its deserving fame.
But I know you exist,
And I know that you cared,
Because of the duty you brought your shoulders to bear.
So thank you for your service,
Thank you for your time,
And for paying so dear a price so freedom can be mine.
For all the love you had,
And for all the rest,
The very least we can do is show some thankfulness.
(Share it with a veteran you love.)
