Today we pause to honor those who have fallen or continue to serve as defenders of the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. No matter your opinion about whether or not our country should be involved in two wars at the moment the fact remains that we have hundreds of thousands of men & women of all races and creeds far away from family and friends putting their lives on the line for me, you, and everyone else who pledges allegiance to the United States of America. Millions more have made the same sacrifice in years and wars past.
Today I will say a prayer for our soldiers. I will read about their stories. I will give thanks for your bravery and courage. And in keeping with the theme of our blog I will share a story of how art can provide healing, bonding, and power to those who have seen the darkest of our humanity.
Peace to each and every one of you.
