Remember Our Veterans

Please say a prayer today for all of our veterans, as this is the day we formally remember them. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, World War I officially came to an end. Every November 11th since has been a day set aside to remember all those who fought (and especially died) to keep America a free nation.

The day was once called Remembrance Day (and also Armistice Day), and it still is in the UK and Canada. In the US it is now known as Veterans Day.

Every night I pray that those men and women who put their lives on the line in the world's hot spots, like Iraq and Afghanistan, will soon come home. May God bless all those who've made the supreme sacrifice, be it this year, or back in 1776, when America struggled to be free. Please also remember those men and women who've come home from America's wars and have struggled with life, and still do.

They will all forever be remembered as heroes of our nation.
