5 Marines Killed Yesterday in Afghanistan
I have to tell you, as I go through my day I read a lot of news. Things happen so fast. One day of news in modern America is more than a month just a couple of decades ago. For the most part I think that is a good thing because it's harder for domestic enemies to get away with things. But there are some down sides. I tend to skim over what should be important. Every day there are men and women who are laying down their lives for you and me. I have to stop and reflect that every day there are men and women laying down there life for you and me. They are gone... forever. They and their family have made the greatest sacrifice. Donating to charity, giving time to church, even public service at the highest levels - pales in comparison. Yet the country focuses on a little dittie from bill's better half (which isn't saying much).
I am going to make an effort to stop when I see an article like this and say a prayer and thank these patriots. I will pray for their families. Unbelievable grief will be with them now for the rest of their life. And I am humbled.
