Happy Veterans Day!

A special THANK YOU to all veterans! This is truly a special day. To those who have and still are fighting; to those who will never return home; to those who have come home wounded, both physically and emotionally; to the families of all our hero’s ~ THANK YOU!

Please stop for just a moment today and say a prayer for these brave men and women who fight for our freedom. It doesn’t matter the reason for the war. It doesn’t matter your political affiliation. It doesn’t matter whether you support the war or not. These men and women aren’t fighting because you are a Democrat or Republican. They aren’t fighting because you are Black or White. They are fighting because it is the right thing to do for our country. They are fighting for your freedom, for your safety, and for your peace of mind.

Heroes

By Jared Jenkins

In war, there are lives risked and lives taken

Men and women giving their best to defend what they love

They defend their country

Their honor

Their people

Some call them soldiers

Others call them heroes

Our veterans have risked their lives for us

They have lived through hell and fought with honor

Many have killed

And regret doing so

For every life, there is a soul

For every soul, there is a life

For those who have died, we show great appreciation and remembrance

For those who live, along with them live the horrific memories of battle

Some, memories of defeat

Some, memories of victory

Our veterans were more than soldiers

They were, and still are heroes

Because of You, Unknown Soldier

By Courtney Tanabe

Because of you, I am here

Because of you, I am able to live freely

Yet I do not know you

And I have not done anything for you

But there you stand, ready to fight

And there you are prepared to die

For me

You’ve fought before

And you’ll fight again

For someone you don’t know

So thank you Unknown Soldier

Fighting for me

I’m here because of you

And I owe my future to you

Have you prayed for our Hero’s lately?
