My son sent this picture to me the other day. He is not a religious person, but he loves God. He has a deep and abiding faith that is pure and unshaken. He tells me all the time that I should pray and that the answers I seek will be revealed. This brings me a sense of peace, sort of. I still worry for him, I miss him. I love him. He is deployed to the Middle East.

This young man is serving our country and today I thought about how incredible it is that he, like other young men and women, would make this decision to serve. What a difficult and important decision to make for a young person, especially in this time of war.
So many of his peers chose to go to college, go to work in the civilian workplace, or start a family. He chose to join the Army. He chose to be a medic and he chose to serve his fellow soldiers and all of us.
It is an honor and a privilege to have him in my life, to be able to love him and be loved by him, to call him my son. Take a moment and think of these brave young men and women who sacrifice so much for us all.
