Veteran's Day

Today is Veteran's Day (also known as Armistice Day). I am actually sitting down to write this at 11:09AM and will pause in two minutes to say a prayer of thanksgiving for those who have fought and served to protect this country and promote freedom over tyranny, particularly those who have given their lives to that end. It is both fitting and sobering that Veteran's Day comes so soon after election day in this country, for at once we are reminded both of the liberty we have to participate in the governance of our nation and the fact that there are those in this country who trample on the service of our armed forces by working to progressively erode and annihilate the very freedoms they died for.

May the Lord bless our troops and our veterans.
