We All Do It...

Pearl Harbor by K-LOVE Radio

You can get so distracted with your own schedule, your problems, you forget a day like today…and what it means.

It was surprise, defeat, and the rise of common purpose from ashes.

Today is the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor

I think younger generations didn’t understand this day until 9-11 another attack on American Soil…to know what we went through on that day…makes you understand what America went through then.

2,400 Americans died that day, and the generation of ordinary citizens… picked up Pearl Harbor’s fallen flag and fought to victory in World War II.

What a great example…they rose from the ashes.  You may not understand what it feels like to go through a war, but you probably understand what it feels like to all of a sudden find your life in a pile of ashes, and to decide to rise. 

So maybe you could pause today from your shopping and Christmas Card addressing and send a card to our troops fighting the war now. 

You can do that through the American Red Cross at redcross.org.

It’s called Holiday Mail for Heroes.

We should always think of our proud service men and women who have dedicated a portion of their lives to not only protect us as americans, but the freedoms and liberties that some of us take advantage of on a regular basis. I work at the Shanksville school, which is 2 miles from the Flight 93 crash. I am reminded of 9/11 every day I come to work.

Although lives were lost on each of these days, God's protecting hand was on our country. Studies show if the Flight 93 was in the air for just a few more seconds, it would have landed right on the school creating even more loss of lives on that tragic day.

Our country was built on the principle of religious freedoms.  May was always be willing to proudly say "In God We Trust" and "God Bless America".  We should also take every chance to thank those who are or were on the front line at any point in time to protect each of us and our freedoms.

Merry Christmas to All and God Bless America.
