All of this...the freedom, the peace, the prosperity, and the simple daily pleasures I enjoy stem from and are preserved by God and by those who gave or give of themselves in service to this country in the military.
That is why I wear red on Fridays. Red on Fridays symbolizes my support of US Troops wherever they are deployed. The prayers I offer up for their protection. The hope I have that one day they can all come home. I encourage you to join me and others in wearing red on Friday. I know many wear school colors on Friday, for their favorite team. While I understand the desire to boaster your team, we couldn't enjoy a Friday night football game without the protection our men and women in the military afford us.
Tomorrow is Veteran's Day. This holiday started out as Armistice Day, years ago in the aftermath of the Great War...WWI. I ask you all to join me in remembering and reflecting with this post from 2007, That None Should Forget.
