Honoring our Service Men and Women This Weekend

Honoring our Service Men and Women This Weekend

"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself."

~Joseph Campbell

With Memorial Day approaching this weekend, I'd like to send a special note out to all of the service men and women, past and present, whom have sacrificed for their country. I think we can all agree that it takes courage to join the armed services, and not charge to be taken lightly. Therefore, here's a movie to honor those whom have made such a bold commitment.

I especially appreciate Lt. Gen. Hal Moore's commitment to reconciliation. As he said, "[General An] went from face-to-face combat to arm-in-arm friendship; [and] unity was restored by our efforts to come together." Reading about how two old enemies could forgive each other and become friends gave me goosebumps. If two opposing generals can put the past behind them, then I think there's hope for reconciliation for everyone!

Have a great Memorial Day weekend.

To Life,

Mac Anderson
