An Honor and a Privilege
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.
