To all veterans of all branches on this Veteran’s Day: Thank you for your sacrifice, your bravery, and the example you set for us all. Thank you for your service!
I once heard someone describe sacrifice as prioritization and discipline. We do not always have the space or time in our lives to do everything we would like. I never thought about sacrifice as prioritization. Clearly, we all have to prioritize what we do in our lives because there are only so many hours in a day. Rather, I have always thought of sacrifice as making an intentional decision for the greater good or for the sake of someone else. To make a sacrifice is to make a sacred gift so that someone else may have life.
While we are conscious of the sacrifices of those serving in the military on this Veteran’s Day, I invite us to give thanks for others who are giving the gift of their lives in service to others so that others may live. May we thank them, too, for their service.
