In this era, I have a suspicion people pick and choose values, like faithfulness, much like they shop at WalMart. Pick up what you need, when you need it, and when you are done with it – throw it away. I see this “way of life” every time I turn on the TV and it stands in stark contrast to the life of the soldier. I know full well many people stereotype soldiers. In most people’s eyes soldiers are “young republicans” with guns. They are right wing banditos of the Bush administration wreaking havoc across the planet. Truth is aggression and political ideology is not our common denominator. We are a collage of political views and values. And I will say again, “Nobody hates aggression more than a soldier.” NOBODY.
Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you,
Jesus Christ and the American Soldier.
One died for your soul;
the other for your freedom.
Just a reminder for us to all live a life worthy of the sacrifice.
