In honor of the men and women who serve our country currently and throughout the ages who have sacrificed physically, mentally, emotionally. To many of us military service is a news blurb on the TV screen, we are so far removed from it. Please don't forget our military and their families, keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Be thankful for our rights and our freedoms in this country that we take for granted. I think of the 14 year old girl ("Malala") in Pakistan who was shot by the Taliban for speaking publicly that females should have the right to attend school. I think about Christians in China who have to meet secretly to read their Bibles and pray together. We are not just "LUCKY" to live with the freedoms and rights we have. Many have served to protect them over the ages. God Bless our Vets.
