We All Say "Thanks"

Patriot Guard Riders
Last weekend we were honored to be in the presence of a group of American veterans. Candler Field in Williamson, Georgia hosted a ceremony to give these special people our thanks and praise for the sacrifices made to keep us free.

We heard stories of heroism, memorials to those gone before us, and songs of America. Several times God was mentioned and thanked for His blessings and protection to this nation. We even had a prayer—and the absence of objections spoke volumes.

Maybe that’s because the honored vets and their families and friends realize what this nation was founded on. It’s what they fought for. It’s what some died for. It’s what all came home for.

I’m thankful we still have places where we can mention God, thank Him, and pray in the name of Jesus without repercussion or liberal bleeding hearts crying about being offended. It’s because of our veterans that we can.

Thanks to all of you who have served our country.
