Veterans deserve better. Those who served in battle went more than the extra mile; many fought on ‘far' distant shores. Too many died there, defending their country and its citizens. They awoke one morning, oblivious to the reality of it being their last. This Memorial Day, celebrate your freedom and reflect on veterans of foreign wars who died in order that freedom would live.
David grieved the deaths of King Saul and his son, Jonathan.
“From the blood of the slain, from the fat of the mighty, the bow of Jonathan did not turn back, and the sword of Saul did not return empty. Saul and Jonathan were beloved and pleasant in their lives, and in their death they were not divided; they were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions (2 Samuel 1:22-23 NKJ).”
“How the mighty have fallen in the midst of battle (2 Samuel 1:25a NKJ)!”
