~United States Military Answering The Call~

Our troops have been the subject of ridicule for several years with the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Yet who is the first to go above and beyond to show compassion for their fellow man, woman or child? It is the military of the United States of America! As I offer prayers for those affected by the tragedy of the earthquake in Haiti, my heart beams with pride as our military rises to the call of duty to serve, protect. rescue and deliver aid! ~God Bless our brave men and women of our armed services~

The report wasn’t clear as to who was among the casualties, I just know that lives ended today. It made me think of our servicemen and women who are serving our nation to protect us and keep us safe and of those that have served. Some have been able to return home to rebuild lives with loved ones, start families, go back to school or hopefully find employment. Some of our finest soldiers have paid the ultimate sacrifice only to be remembered in prayers and in the hearts of loved ones left behind, or names inscribed on a plaque or memorial.

                This is the day on twitter that we honor our military with our #SOT, #MilitaryMonday, we send out “tweets” to honor our military, their families and let them know there is a nation that supports them. My tweet to our military, their family that I want to convey is that “you make me proud.” I feel privileged to live in a country where men and women from all walks of life, ethnic background and from diverse cultures volunteer themselves in protecting this great nation. So today as we go about our daily routine, remember to keep our military in your thoughts and prayers, pray for their safety, pray for those in harms way, pray for a safe return home….
