To all of the unselfish heroes who have given everything for us, you will never be forgotten. (Anonymous)
We take this time to honor those men and women who freely gave their lives for their own country. They chose to lay down their lives and to be brave in the midst of overwhelming odds, in order to fight for freedom on behalf of their family, friends, and even strangers.
No one has greater love [nor stronger commitment] than to lay down his own life for his friends (John 15:13)
They did not die in vain, nor do their lives glorify war, but their loving example reminds us of what love is willing to do without any accolades. So, thank you for revealing to us how willing hearts have chosen to consider us more important than themselves. Amen.
