Psalms 33:12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
Many in the past have been drafted into the Military to serve and to protect our great Nation. Today we have a different military. A military made up completely of volunteers, those who joined, knowing they could be placed in harms way. We have the best trained, best equipped, best qualified men, and yes women, serving in the Armed Forces that this or any other nation has ever known. Whether you agree with the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan or not, these troops are worthy of our respect, our support, our gratitude and especially our prayers. This Nation will fight terrorists. Not because we chose to but because the nature of terrorists is to attack any Nation whose God is the Lord. We can fight them there or we can wait and fight them here. Right now that choice is ours. It might not always be.
While we remember the fallen, while we honor all those who have served to protect this Nation, let us not forget the ones who still serve and are still in harm's way.
THIS IS A GREAT NATION:
Because our God is the Lord.
When we forget that, or turn from that not only will be no longer be Great, we will be weak, and we will cease to be a great Nation.
